Author's Bio

I've been writing poetry for twenty years. Seventy-eight of my poems have been published in journals and anthologies, and this year I published a book: POEMS YOU'LL LOVE: A COLLECTION OF LYRIC POEMS AND HAIKU. The book is a collection of 142 of my poems. They are easy to read but have a genuine suggestion and a felt-depth and univeral themes allowing every reader to identify with them. The introduction includes a mini course on lyric poems and haiku. The book is a gathering of poems to be enjoyed by all.
