Rich Jax (aka ‘Fegger’) resides with his wife, Terry, and four of his five children (fifth being in college), in the quaint New England town of Brooklyn, CT.
He began his writing aspirations at the age of 11, penning poetry, song lyrics and short stories. He published his first poem at age 14 (defrauding the contest rules by embellishing upon his age and credentials). While attending college, University of Wisconsin--LaCrosse, a mentoring English Professor, Dr. Jay Norris, submitted collections of Rich’s poetry (unbeknownst to him) to a regional literature publication and the University’s magazine; and his work attained the cover and feature submissions in both publications simultaneously. Until recently, Rich has refrained from publishing any of his contemporary or archived writing efforts; and, only now, is beginning to trickle a diverse body of work to the public that includes: poetry, short stories, songs (lyrics and music), children’s books/stories, and editorials. As time and solace dictate, he aspires to complete two novels, Clay and Empty Sails, which have remained as unfulfilled projects for decades.

The experience and understanding of a true poet and friend, Fegger, is warmhearted and wise. The poems in this collection are wide-ranging – each and every one – like a huge road map wherein the marked routes lead to many places. It is difficult if not impossible to interpret a poet in his entirety through words, but in this collection and any poem Fegger writes, there is a message for every mood and every affliction – he makes words sing or cry. I was fortunate to discover his poetry in an unexpected place and was immediately enchanted. If you need enlightenment or a different perspective in life, this wonderful collection of readable poems will broaden your personal horizon and your world. His poetry is always vividly articulate and comes from a human heart that knows, change is as inevitable as the turning of the seasons and the tides. I admire you Fegger because of your deep commitment and enthusiasm for your music, poetry and the arts in general. I respect you because of your deep and abiding love for your family and friends. I envy you because you don't harness yourself with blinders or snobbery, and amid the complexities and distractions of your own life, you still have the capacity for goodwill toward many – this collection of poems spoke directly to my heart Fegger – thank you. ───(♥)(♥)(♥)────(♥)(♥)(♥) __ ɪƒ ƴσυ'ʀє αʟσηє,
