I write strongly from using the environement that surounds me. Many of my stories contain elements of myself and my environment and the environment that I grew up in and around, I am very conscious of using everyday life as a barometer for creating conflicted characters. I'm always re-adjusting the lens point of view. My stories don't always have a happy ending because life almost never has a happy ending. My charachters not only look upon their world but they also look out at the larger world. In some cases they must look deep within their soul and report back. This has been a conscious decision to hone upon what actually happens in the world and how to deal or not deal with the metropolis gaze which has long defined my writings. To say a bit more for me or the world that I am creativley building would be very precise in moving characters from the cliche umbrella of the ghetto characters. If I do my job properly I can develop universal characters who are relatable to anyone in the world without having the reader to think, Oh, here I am reading about the inner city ghetto characters doing what I expect of them to do. I think I'm on my way to succeeding in conveying the complexity of it all. I can truly say that I am not or that I do not have an interest in altering the world around me, I would just like my readers to have the concrete details as a pointer to guide them through the collection of my charachters. I think that this provides an element of satisfaction to the reader that may not have been possible in a stand alone story. In some parts my stories are violent or have a violent nature but such is the world that we live in, some of my stories can be incredibly tender and can be a position of violence and tenderness that I believe can be and has become the real engine of my collection of stories, that can be of perseverance through hard times and survival. I hope that the world enjoys them as much as I loved and enjoyed writing them.
