I turned 64 on January 31, 2021.   I wrote fiction and poetry from February 1970 to April 2000, when personal problems and health kept me from writing.  In 2003 I started writing poetry again, and November 2009 I wrote my first short story since April 2000.   I am politically an anti-fascist -- which means I am opposed to most major political parties in the world.   I write SF, fantasy, horror, mainstream (largely about the plight of the unemployed & street people), and sometimes mystery. 

Never stop writing!   And never listen to anyone who says you have no talent.   Remember, "Those who can write.   Those who can't, are critics!"

All the best!
