About Edward E. Rochon

I write for my health and the health of the world. Often the cure rivals the disease in grief and aches. My writing career started at twelve when I attempted to write a sequel to Huckleberry Finn but never finished it. My writings have included poetry, plays, a novel, non-fiction and writing newsletters for here and there. Recently, I am dabbling into short stories. Apart from newsletters, nothing has been published in print. I bought an audio recording of one of my poems but threw it away in disgust due to an inappropriate reading by the narrator. 'Contra Pantheism...' was my first eBook. About a hundred eBooks have been published since including some books of verse, and my essays collected into five volumes, and one volume of collected poems. A few other types of literature are on my list of published works. My essays deal with fundamental questions of philosophy as well as natural philosophy (science.) On the whole, my works are as far above the writings of Plato and Aristotle as the material power of the United States is over that of Ancient Greece. I once asked myself if I had ever written anything memorable, but couldn't remember exactly what I had written. I started to check my manuscripts but stopped as it seemed the answer to the question was obvious. Gore Vidal mentioned in one of his memoirs that writers tend to forget what they write and are a bad source to ask about their works. Gore knew a lot of writers. I have not and may have been a bit hard on myself. Apart from self-improvement and maybe making a few bucks, my main goal is to bring about a golden age for mankind. Being a man, this sounds appealing. It is pointless to desist and all small measures are worth the effort. Albert Camus thought suicide the only serious philosophical question. He was a fool and died young. Suicide is a waste of time. The most important functional question is: How do I get what I want? The one question that trumps this is the ultimate question of intent: What should I want? As Goethe pointed out: Be careful what you wish for in your youth, you might get it in middle age.

Review by: Karin Mabry on Feb. 9, 2015 :
'Peach Power' was my first of your publications that I read. I just self published, here, my first book and thought I would have a look at what other people were self publishing. Actually, I really wanted to see what other people's covers looked like compared to mine ('Horses in the City-Tales and Reflections of a Memphis Carriage Driver', btw) Anyway, your use of the word 'peach' for 'white' was quite interesting and your poems in The Sex one (I forgot the name) were quite creative. I look forward to reading more of your stuff as I thoroughly enjoy the fact that you've only made $26 in all the self publishing you've done. It proves that, because you've published so much, you really in it to give, not receive. I admire that as it is a rare trait these days.
