Gene Denham


I started writing as a kid. In school I won a few contests with my short stories and one with my poem "God and Mother Nature".

Since then I have had the poem "Lust" read on Houston Public Radio. Also, a religious magazine in Canada has published the poems "Testament" and "God and Mother Nature".

I am currently focusing on my prose.

You can contact me via my website.

Although a native Buckeye, I currently live in Houston with my wife and kids.

    Brutally honest! Its a fun read. Even when you disagree with the poet you can't help but admire his use of words. Favorites are My Answer, Forgotten, and Carpe Nochem.
