Author's Bio

I grew up in the southern Appalachians during the school year and the southern German Albs in the summer time. Learning stone masonry helped pay my way and keep me focused through college until I met this bright spirit in a poetry class. I payed a lot less attention to class and work after that, but in return I found a friend with which to explore the world.
