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.
