I am a prolific writer of poetry. My main subject is child sexual abuse which I write to share with those who suffer from this trauma. I also sometimes write about love and inspiration and, a small amount of my poetry is about the years I spent suffering from the effects of alcohol abuse. I have written five volumes of poetry to date, two are presently in production. My current book, "Mind Guards the Gate" is available now in pre-release at my publishers site www.tatepublishing.com.
I suffer from a bi-polar disorder that went undiagnosed for most of my life and from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) as a result of my nine years of child sexual abuse.
I consider it my mission in life to share what I have been through with those who share my pain through the only way I know how, through my verse.
I also have a passion for writing love poems.
I live in Ansonia Connecticut USA with my wife of fifteen years along with my two teenage children, three cats, and one dog.
