John Archievald Gotera was born and raised in San Francisco, CA. He enjoys hiking, meditating, cooking, weightlifting, healthy-eating, aromatherapy, collecting gemstones and yoga. He is always adventurous in a sense of discovering new hobbies & interests.
Also known as Archie, he looks back at all the poems that he has written and appreciates the evolution of writing style and techniques. Prior to winter 2006, he had little interest in poetry until a few, interesting events weaved together. These few incidents guided him to poetry as an outlet to his endless bursts of emotions longing for a steam of release. As a result, he ended up writing about over half of the material in less than a week's time which debuted in his first poetry compilation, Misty Dawn Road. Now, he is ready to release his next poetry e-book titled, "This is Not My Favorite Waterfall".
As he continues to write more poems of various themes and styles, he has dared himself to venture his way into writing a series of novels.

This compilation wittily touches on relatable themes of nostalgia, boredom, deception, strength, and love. Some poems are beautiful in their straightforward delivery while other pieces push you to read between the lines of playful metaphors to figure out the underlying message. In this second release, the author continues to take readers on a passionate journey of reflection, self-discovery, and the search for a power within to bravely move forward and face the future with both courage and faith. Transient Dreams is characteristic of this journey. He begins to search for who he is and what he stands for. He questions his dreams and passion with an uncertain future looming ahead. That is something I can relate to at the junction of this new chapter in my life. Instant sonic is a great ode to reminiscing about the innocence of childhood or simple times of the past. It reminds me to live well in the present so I can have great memories to keep as I grow older. When Everything Finally Clears is a beautiful love poem. When the drama finally subsides, we all hope to rekindle the love we once felt.
