I’m happy to announce that my second book of poetry has been published. Over the past six years or so, I’ve written a number of poems about/for my wife and children. This fall I decided to pick the best ones, make a book out of them, and publish it on the heels of our 10th wedding anniversary. I’m extremely pleased with how it turned out.

“3: Poems for My Wife and Kids” is just that — a collection of love poems inspired by the three most important people in my life. The book of more than 50 poems, written mostly in short form, offers a glimpse of the first decade of a marriage and the wisdom gleaned from two young children.
Fans of my shorter poems — and anyone with young children — should find the book enjoyable. The book is available to purchase via Amazon and the CreateSpace store (this option puts more money in my pocket).

P.S. My first book, FM Ghost, is still available for purchase as well.
Thanks for reading and following my work!
