About meI am an author and publisher whose third novel was launched in January 2011 and who now has a short collection of verses which was published early 2012 and which is ideal for poetry readings.
A member of SWWJ in the UK I am spending more time giving talks than writing but still use LT to find books to read and to ease me into internet chat.I have just joined a group recording for the blind and am concentrating on writing short stories for publication.
Here comes more new poetry!
Now, in the Autumn of our years
We wait to see what Winter brings.
While russet beauty calms our fears
Chill Winter hints of sufferings.
We've savoured all the joys of youth,
Forged paths through lifetime's verdant Spring,
The love and laughter constant proof
Summer is time for blossoming.
Now Autumn sees us slow - and taste
The harvest of our earlier years,
Determined that we should not waste
The lessons learned from hopes and fears.
But all the wisdom garnered then
Cannot protect from Winter's cold.
There's no escape the fate of men
To live the seasons, and grow old.
About my libraryI have only just started to buy books.Most of my list is from the local library.
I enjoy fiction, mostly character based thrillers and human interest page turners.
I usually find I can't read popular fantasy books, but I have read SCi Fi and written speculative fiction.
I haven't listed all the children's books and classics in my library, just some of those I've read since I joined LT.
I needed to record books by authors I admired and LT is perfect for that.
