About ‘me’

Your author

Welcome to ‘me’. I’m Steven Humphreys, your poetry author. And, I am really happy you dropped by to read my ‘stuff’. All written within this site is original.

In younger days, I got inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s poem ‘Annabel Lee’ and Henry David Thoreau’s notes on how he spent his time (two years) at ‘Walden Pond’. I wanted to be like them.

Writing keeps me sane…

Recently, I enjoyed reading J.D. Salinger’s ‘Catcher in the Rye’. I found Salinger’s book in the bottom of a ‘storage box’ my wife’s kids left in our garage. And, as for ‘Bukowski’, I have absolutely no idea how I stumbled upon him.

I might have a few suggestions that might help get you started writing your own book being I have self published a few through Amazon and Barnes and Noble. Check out my page about self publishing.
