I was an alright basketball player, am an alright dad and a alright husband. I am also an alright cook, an alright poet, an alright author and an alright artist! When you add it all up...it's make a great life! I absolutely love my life and wouldn't trade it for all of the gold in the world...but I will share it!


Background Information

I'm Marty Embry, your guide and host to this doorway to fantastic poetry books, original art work, cooking apparel, calendars, cookbooks, spices and cookware.

I have published 8 cook books with the 8th being released in December 2012.  My spices were created because of my desire for flavoring foods with simple ingredients.  I graduated from DePaul University in Chicago.  Need I say how wonderful Chicago is to entice your palate to dance to the beat of its own drum by daring to venture to the restaurants in the city?  After graduating from DePaul, I played professional basketball in Europe for 13 years and what better way to learn how to mix and match flavors, while creating succulent meals!

My cook books are virtual European restaurants on paper!  Turkish delights, Spanish specialties, Belgium delicacies, simple Italian creations, delicious Japanese bites and please don't get me started on all of the southern cuisine that my mom, dad, wife and mother in law taught me!  Wow, I just had a moment! 

Please, for the love of all that is holy and sacred, take your time and enjoy your meal, enjoy your family and friends and enjoy how food can enhance your dining experience!  There is nothing like slowly eating a home cooked meal and allowing your palate to be bathed in the wonderful flavors, but only after your nose has gone into overdrive!  Did I mention to you that I really, really enjoy food!

The spices were created to emphasize my nearly 25 years of recipes. The idea was to create delicious and flavorful spices that could easily enhance any dish, whether it was from my cook book or one of your personal recipes.

Poet's Corner is a web site developed for poetry lovers. If you are a helpless and hopeless romantic, this is the site for you.

Please enjoy the site, the poetry and the poetry books. If you would like to add your poetry book or novel to my site to sale, feel free to inquire or follow the instructions below.  Upon payment, your book information will be uploaded within 24 hours. I'll also have a link created to go directly to your personal web site to checkout your product.  There are no additional payments incurred, other than the $10 monthly advertising fee.  

If you would like to add your personal copyright protected poetry to the Poet's Corner for all to see, please inquire about that as well. There is no charge for this service.  There is a three poem limit, per customer for this service.  However, I will only allow copyright protected items to be shown on The Poet's Corner.
 
To advertise your book on the Poet's Corner, please send me a copy of your book cover, an excerpt of your book and a web site address for checkout or your personal web site. I will also add a one paragraph author biography as well. 
 
Your customer will be directed to your web site or checkout to purchase your product.  There will be a $10 monthly hosting fee and when you purchase your first month, your second month will be free.

Put on a little jazz...sip some wine and immerse yourself in some seriously sensual and thought provoking poetry.
 

Marty's Art website was created for the sole purpose of displaying and selling my art work.  What a wonderful concept...ART!  I am amazed that I actually created the pieces on this web site!  I absolutely love art...any art and all art!  I don't have a favorite period nor do I have a favorite artist. 

I'm greedy and I simply enjoy it all.  Art transports me to another time and place as I try to visualize how and what the true masters were thinking of as they created their masterpieces.

I played basketball at DePaul University and it was there that my love of art was truly born.  Chicago is a virtual endless zone of wonderful, beautiful and exciting art and architecture.  I would often walk from campus to Lake Michigan and take out my charcoal and pad and simply become lost in my own little world of art.

After graduating from DePaul, I packed my bag and went to Europe.  I played professional basketball in Europe for 13 years.  It was Europe that I honed my skills as an artist and chef.  When you think about it, a great chef could easily make a great artist.  Conversely, a great artist should make a great chef!  They both create visually enticing pieces, whether it's on a plate or on a canvas.  I happen to have an incredible thirst, love, lust and desire for both.
 
Take your time to enjoy my art because I certainly enjoyed creating it all. It is simple, thought provoking, beautiful and inexpensive.  You'll find yourself mesmerized by a few of the pieces.  Hopefully, you are going to fall in love with art just as I did.
