I am a writer/poet living in Central Missouri with my wife, three cats and an overactive imagination. I've had a few poems appear on various web publications, am a frequent contributor to The Book Times, and have a poetry collection titled "Tender Mercies" available.
I've given thought to mapping the inside of my eyelids, but it requires closer study.
I write because I can. I enjoy it, it's relaxing in a panic inducing fashion. Keeps the nightmares at bay.
To Kill a Mockingbird - Harper Lee
