I'm a 57 year old Medical Lab Tech who is happily married with children and grand children. I've been writing for about two years and have a website called "The Window" where I post poetry and stories. My dog Sophie features in quite a few of them.
Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in small town Minnesota. Some small industry and a lot of farming. When I write, It comes from my experiances growing up. My childhood helped form my religious and political opinions and I write from that prospective as well.
When did you first start writing?
I wrote a play for a class project in high school and a friend and I wrote our own cartoon strip which was never published anywhere. Until about two years ago I really didn't write anything except the occasional poem. I have been writing steadily for two years now.
I was force fed poetry in high school as I'm sure many people were. And like many, I ran screaming from the classroom. If that's what happened to you then I think you'll like this book. Modern free verse poetry on subjects that matter today, and stories from my blog, "The Window." Some are serious and some humorous. I think you'll find a little something for everyone here.

This is not the first of Gregs work I have read and true to form, "Transitions" come across just as readable as his other works. He crafts his word pictures with ease and says things we all have felt but didn't know how to put into words. When you can read one of his poems and say "Yes! Yes, I know what he means!" Then the author is connecting with his audience. Greg does this very well. As a poet myself, I strive to do the same and can learn many things from Gregs works.
