I was born in Queens, New York in March 1965. I came across rough times when my five brothers and sisters and I were abandoned by both parents. I was no older than four years old. In 1993 I found out I have the gift of writing. At first it was a way to channel my energy and escape. I later decided to use this gift to educate others as well as do something positive for our communities. I Wrote, Directed and Acted in four educational plays: Justice by Force, (Gang violence-1995)“Our Streets Our Neighborhood,” (Neighbors taking back their streets-1997) “Mama it’s My Baby,” (Teenage pregnancy-1999) and “Until Death Do Us Part.” (Domestic Violence-2000 and an encore presentation in 2001)
I began writing Screenplays in 2000. I found I have the ability to write Screenplays of any genre (from action to horror/fiction or non-fiction) I have finished three full-length screenplays. I am also working on several other Screenplays. I write poetry and have three published poetry books. They are, "Inspirational and Educational Poems First Edition,"(2007) "Inspirational and Educational Poems Second Edition,"(2008) and "Motivational and Inspirational Poems." (2010) The Poetry books educationally address tough youth, community and political social issues. I have finished a powerful novel entitled, "Deceptive Vows," which deals with domestic violence. I also have written a book entitled, “Predator on the Diamond: The Boston Red Sox Youth Molestation Story,” which is based on a true story. They were published by Tavares Entertainment, LLC. I have been a Youth Motivational Speaker since 2004. I speak with youth from grades four to twelve. I have established my own business in the Atlanta Georgia area. I am CEO and Founder of Tavares Entertainment, LLC. (founded 2005)
