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. I have dabbled into short stories. Apart from newsletters, have one book (Paradoxes) 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. Some 210 eBooks have been published since, including some books of verse, some of my essays collected into five volumes, three box sets and two volumes 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.)
