1. Describe Your Books I am the author of 25 books in several genres: poetry, photography, humor, theatre, and guides for authors and writers. My latest releases include a series of short Haiku books (Walks: A Collection of Haiku), a collection of poems that I wrote at the beginning of my career (The Heart of Space), and my first foray into the humor genre (Bad. Pitches. Period. 30 Flavors of Spammy Emails). All my books are influenced by life and the lessons I have learned.
2. Share a Line from your Book and Explain What it Means to You
Here is a haiku from Walks: A Collection of Haiku (Volume 1):
"Cherry trees in bloom:
Spring in the English garden
where two lovers meet." Haiku freeze a moment in time. They force you to be concise. Most importantly, they are an invitation to the reader to "smell the roses" and focus on what matters. Haiku describe the human journey in the most beautiful way. 3. Who/What Influenced the Writing of Your Books? My biggest influences are life and the world around me. I love sharing the lessons I learn on a daily basis. As far as artists are concerned, Kahlil Gibran and Alphonse de Lamartine remain my biggest influences. 4. If Your Book Had a Soundtrack, What Would it Be? My favorite classical piece being Addinsell's Warsaw Concerto, I think most of my books would work well with it. 5. What Else Would You Like to Share About your Book(s)?
