Frank S. O’Neal is a lifelong learner, writer, musician and world traveler. Through three major career changes and his constant pursuit of understanding, he has gained a unique voice for his writing. While in high school, an alert teacher recognized O’Neal’s gift and encouraged him to use it as a tool to search for his passion and follow his dreams. He used the pen to help him stay grounded and connected to himself as he traveled through his careers in the US Coast Guard, then as an industrial paramedic and through taxing days working as an emergency room nursing assistant.
He has traveled the world, from Asia to the Middle East and the Caribbean, all of which added to his world view and experiences. As his teacher suggested, O’Neal has used poetry and writing to reconnect and reemerge continuously, while discovering where his life will lead him next.
