Writing has become second nature after the publish or perish life of a university faculty member. Since leaving the university, I’ve continued writing poetry and in life styles. Below are two of my books now available:
When Shall the Butterfly Rest is a collection of beautifully written poetry that explores the many facets of life. The emotions of a lifetime are captured in short, distinct poems filled with imagination and imagery.
The poems flowed at times as if from an unknown hand, while at others had to be hammered and chiseled out to find their form. The poems form a puzzle to fit together, enjoy, and ponder. Thought provoking, funny, or maybe just romantic.
The book is a composite of 95+ poems from Creating an Extraordinary Life: the Poet’s Heart plus many new poems. The poems have been organized into chapters for the reader to enjoy and ponder. Thought provoking, funny, or maybe just romantic, read on and explore When Shall the Butterfly Rest…

Creating an Extraordinary Life: the Poet’s Heart is a composite of 95+ poems that reflect some of my innermost thoughts. The poems create a puzzle to fit together, ponder, and enjoy.

Creating an Extraordinary Life: Breaking Through the Abyss
Many of us make life a little too complex. For example, we all share common physical attributes and need simple necessities such as shelter, food, water, and air to breathe. We need companionship, and seek out friends who support and sustain us daily.
We also share the desire to know who we are; how to find happiness, success, and achieve our dreams; what is God’s plan for us; and how to improve the way we view and image our self and worth.
This book will help you find answers that you seek. For more detail
