Author Ronald Joseph Kule
"Internationally published author, biographer, and ghostwriter of non-fiction and novels” sounds fancy, but I’m simply a professional author with skills and a mission to write entertaining, uplifting stories for my readers’ enjoyment.
People tell me, "You create emotional stories... you paint pictures with words." Well, I write what I see in front of me, adding imagination where it will improve the story.
Growing up in a cramped house, competing for personal space among seven brothers and sisters; two parents; (most times) at least one good hunting dog; and a score of kids living on our block, I learned how to hold my ground, at times from a perch 30 feet up my favorite tree in the woods behind our house.
I was born in Bogota, Colombia, from Polish-immigrant coal miner and blue-blooded, Colombian-Chilean parentage and came to appreciate ethnic values and cultural differences by observing directly disparate social classes and living conditions in many areas of Earth. My heritage paint-brushed a wanderlust onto my life-canvas: I’ve spent time in 39 countries and performed keynote addresses in 17. While I laugh often and can experience a panorama of emotions just for fun, I prefer making other people smile and generally feel happier for having met me or read my books.
If you curl up with one of my books and find yourself breathless, provoked, inspired, changed, and feeling like you just undertook an important journey that left you more than satisfied, my job as an author will have been a success.
Currently, home is Clearwater, Florida, but my passport yearns for more nation-stamps, and my bags can be packed on a moment’s notice!
