"In You Alone”, the book’s title and lead poem, was inspired by Andre Rieu’s violin rendition of “You Raise Me Up”. The other poetic endeavors were inspired by God Who has been most generous in handing me the words to my poems. For each poem I offer due praise to Him for His Gift.
In 1988 I suffered a heart attack in Anchorage, Alaska while on a job assignment there. That event got my full attention. Disabled by the heart attack, I began writing novels and poetry, reflecting on the many gifts God had shared with me over the years. This attention-getting event has led me to publish three novels and seven books of poetry since that date.
Poetry, in my opinion, is to be shared and should a line or two touch someone’s heartstrings, I am delighted. For my effort, God receives the honor and the glory which He so richly deserves.
As you read the poems, perhaps in your daily devotionals, I trust that a line or two will touch your heartstrings as you meditate upon God’s Love and His Grace.

The 84-year old author resides in Herriman, Utah. He was born in the tiny farm community of Ace, Texas, the ninth and youngest child of a sharecropping family. He graduated at the top of his class in Huntsville, Texas in 1955 and attended Sam Houston State Teachers College and Rice Institute (both now of University level).
Other than his love of writing, he is an avid duplicate bridge player, having attained the rank of Ruby Life Master in January 2020.
Though he now resides in Utah, he has remained a member of St. Timothy Lutheran Church in Houston, Texas, his home before moving to Utah three years ago.
