I have a secret I must confess. I'm a poetry buff. I tattoo Emily Dickinson's words onto my white sneakers with Sharpie; I can recite a good third of the entirety of Shel Silverstein's works; I say things like, "everyone knows free verse is much more eloquent when accompanied with artful caesura usage, darling."

My favorite kind of author, is one who draws you into a desire to further explore what he or she has written about, so much so, that you find yourself “googling”, searching, even yearning to learn all there is to know about what or who they have written about.
