Quick Draw (Excerpt From “My Little Book of Essays”)

Years ago I started writing for the sake of it. I spent nights in the streets of Houston… living it Out Loud and Without Regret. I met a lot of great people, and some, not so much.

Again, I KNOW that it doesn’t make up for my demented mind… but, hey, at least I’m trying!
