INFORMATION
Just published my first poetry book on Amazon kindle. Titled "Nearly Sane: Don't Look down. 32 short poems and 15 flash fiction stories with my perspectives on the world. Many thanks to Robert Spice, R.C. Hartson and Gary L. Redmiles for their stellar reviews. Check it out.

Married for 46 years this August (2019). Wife and I have produced two wonderful sons. Been vegan for 32 plus years. We have co-written a children's CD and continue working on creative projects together. I have worn many hats professionally, including field laborer, business owner, program administrator, to name a few.
I want to write from all parts of the world and to inspire and be inspired by this planet and all of its life forms.

Hugh McDowell: I will probably upgrade today or tomorrow. On the cash contests can I have more than one entry? For instance, on the poetry contest with four lines, syllable count 1-5-5-9 can I enter more than one poem/
thanks

    rama devi: Warm welcome to fanstory. I believe only one entry is allowed for each contest, but when the contest is over, you can enter a new one for the next one.

    rama devi: Congrats on your honorable mention in the 5-7-5 contest. :)
