I've just finished uploading all the data about my 20 books. CHECK 'EM OUT!! And I'm now announcing the release of my second illustrated book of verse! With 135(+) poems totaling more than 72,000 words, there's a lot of material here for your reading pleasure. Penning verse for more than 40 years now, I'm a traditional rhyme-and-meter advocate...provided it's top quality. Due out Nov., 2008.

Background Information

The list of the poets that I've read that influenced me the most includes Lord Byron, Elizabeth Barret Browning, Rudyard Kipling, Edgar Allan Poe, and Alfred Lord Tennyson . With no formal training to either hone, [or skew and dilute] my style, I suspect my work to be the type that many readers of contemporary poetry seldom encounter.

Birth Place
LeMars, IA 

I was one of [typically] MANY winners of some state and national poetry contests in the 1960s and 1970s. I was featured as the Winter Quarter Featured Poet, 2005 by Muses Review, with 3 works nominated for poem of the year in both the fall and winter contests, and overall winner for the best poem and best poetry book of 2004 as well.

Additional Information

A REMINDER; Still available is my first collection of 200 poems in a unique 4-volume set entitled: "A Lyrical Look at Life". 50 poems per book. I was featured by poet John Birkbeck [Carmen Creek Press] in Iowa City, Iowa on their public television program, "The Poet's Corner," on three occasions. In addition, in 2003, my wife, Connie, and I published a 288 page, hardcover price guide book on antique billiard collectibles that has sold all over the world.
