AUTHOR GYPSY QUILL'S PROFILE e.g.www.gypsyquill.com
When gypsy was a bit younger his mother told him his long hair reminded her of a gypsy. And that became his nick-name. Later on he got rid of his long hair but kept the name.
In 2002 a poem won him a Poet of Merit award and he was inducted into the International Society of Poets by Bo Derek.
He took this picture from his room at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel, where the symposium was held.
But he has always had a passion for hiking beautiful nature trails.After publishing his recent books he decided to take a break!
Crater Lake Was a huge mountain in pre-historic times. She blew and left nothing but a huge crater which became a lake. Has some of the purest water on the planet.
Gypsy holds titles and awards to have been successful in many ways. But on this site, he is a book author.He was a poet at age ten and although he was a prolific writer even then, he never let anyone read them.
"I was not that good of a writer at that age and even though a poem does not serve any purpose if it is not read, I knew I would get better. I just did not want to let anyone read it until I got really good! Everyone has to find happiness within themselves in life. There's no such thing as someone making you happy. Writing poetry was one way I found my happiness as a child.But I never took it seriously."
But it was taken seriously later in life, after being published in several anthologies of poetry. Gypsy at some point crossed over into story book writing. But he incorporates epic poetry into the novel, poetry which helps tell the story! In fact it was a poem that gave him the idea to write the story...THE CANYON'S SHADOW. That book was the manifestation of finding his voice as a story teller. He wrote the poem first and it became the seed, from which the story grew.
