I came to America when I was 14 months old. I began writing as a teenager. Mostly thoughts, feelings, entries in a diary.
I wrote a short story when I was 18 called 'The Past Remains' which is from a poem I wrote when I was 15. I still have the yellowed pages of the story. I was given directions on how to publish it but never followed thru out of fear and ignorance. I also sent the same poems words into a company called '
Five Star Music Masters' back in 1983. They made a cassette tape out of the 'Past remains' and put sheet music to it. I still hold those pages...
