I am currently writing my memoirs and have written poetry. More recently I am working on short stories.

What do you read?

The Count of Monte of Cristo is my favorite book and I recently read The Black Count by Tom Reiss an Historical Account of Alexander Dumas' Grandfather who the Count of Monte Cristo was based on.

Tell me something else about yourself, please?

I lived in Japan from 1958 to 1962 when I was in my early twenties. The experience changed me in ways that I experience deeply to this day.
