"Some of my work has already been published, thanks to a professor from the university."

I was born in Willis, Texas in 1975. Both of my parents (now deceased) were drug addicts and alcoholics. When I was finally old enough to move out, I made a decision that my children would never deal with the kind of life that I had. I worked two jobs to finish my undergraduate degree, and now I'm almost done with my M.A. from SNHU. Some of my work has already been published, thanks to a professor from the university, and it looks as if I am on the way to finalizing a publication of my first novel. When it is all said and done, I really just want my children to feel safe and secure, and if by some higher grace I find success in the middle of being a teacher and father, I can say that I have done more than I ever expected.
