As someone who appreciates the power of the written word, I am always looking for others who are putting pen to paper and giving the world something great through prose. I might not always agree with what is being said, but I can appreciate the skills and the gift that the author had.

I just wanted to offer a book suggestion to you entitled, "Man of Few Words" by Fabian M.C. Kuykendall. Over 300 pages of original poetry on almost every topic imaginable. I gaurantee it's unlike anything you've ever read!
