I am a 35-year-young poet and artist who has been writing poetry for publication for the past five years. Recently transplanted to the land of corn and soybeans I now live in Indiana. Due to illness, I find myself a �domestic engineer� with a great deal of time on my hands which I occupy creating art and writing the odd verse or two.

My work has been widely published across the Internet and can also be found in recent books such as A Generation Defining Itself: In Our Own Words, Volume 2 (MWE Publishing); Poetry the Write Way - Webstatic-First Journey (first edition, iUniverse Publishing); and anthologies published by Poetry.com. My works may also be found in the first editions of the poetry magazette Write On (JIM-N-I Lyrics & Poetry publications).

I receive a great deal of e-mail from fans of my work and rising new poets. The question they most often ask is: �Where do you get your inspiration and how do you translate it into words?� The �where� part is fairly easy to answer . . . my inspiration comes from everything around and within me; situations, people and the emotions that are evoked. The �how� part is something I cannot truly describe beyond saying it is a form of need to express. Poets don�t merely write poetry . . . poets ARE the poetry they write.
