Corporate Logo

In 1984 I was screen printing 
t-shirts and my boss gave me ten free polo shirts "IF" I could come up with a logo to put on them. My family (the Paynes) came to America in the mid-1600s from Wales and so I liked the idea of making my initials the sails of an early ship. I liked too using silver on blue the color of the sea and the sky. It is both simple and beautiful.

Author & Freelance Professional Writer.

I write because I want to find something out. I write in order to learn something that I didn't know before I wrote it. I write because I love it so much. I write because I love seeing my thoughts printed out in ink on paper in front of me. My writing requires me to research and read and think three things I dearly do love. The very act of writing makes my thoughts somehow more real.

How I am seen.

Malo mori quam foedari

Don Quixote & his squire Sancho Panza

The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha written by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra (29 September 1547 – 22 April 1616). Cervantes created characters and a story that reminds me and my life partner Edward Mario Fuerte. He is at my side as I battle injustice and the things I feel I must. He also follows me as I chase my Impossible Dreams.
