Steve Lake

Biography

Thanks for the downloads! To date there has been 10,903, I hope you got a good laugh.

I have dyslexia which has hurt my proper grammar and my touch of A.D.D. doesn't help. I would encourage everyone that knows someone that has dyslexia to look into Grammarly. I wish this was around when I was in school (yes in prehistoric times) life would have been a lot better and less cruel.

Today I have finished my 1000 plus poems. Some I will post for free, some I will hide in darkness and some I will sell as justification of my time spent and the love poems i will lock away just for me.
Still, I have decided to stay with free verse poetry riddled with humor. I know my peers frown upon my work which just drives me berserk. I do not judge others harshly even if I disagree with their work.
So, with that in mind, I will just write them into one or more of my poems for others to laugh at.

So please continue with me on my lengthy journey because it is going to be a wild ride, I've only scratched the surface of two brain cells to date, 100,000 more to go! My file cabinet is becoming full with poems I have written but not yet published, soon to come!

Feel free to be positive about my writings and if you feel the need to be negative the person in your mirror is the problem not my effort to make someone laugh.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
about 30 years ago but life got busy and onto the back burner it went.
What's the story behind your latest book?
my latest book (a taste of my thoughts Volume 1) is the beginning on my first step to my path of a 1000 poems
that i decided to write after my dad passed away. he wrote music and he too was restricted by life not getting
the chance to share his work.
always wanting to be a comedian young in life i have always found humor in all I see and do. i see the smiles and laughter comedians bring into this world so in my own way this is my contribution to brighten the world just a little
bit more than when we woke up this morning.
