You can buy my books here. I have two books of poetry, and they both include 25 poems, that tell the reader about my life. They start at my childhood, then progress to how life changed after my first wife left my two sons and I. Those poems lead into alcohol abuse, drug addiction, failed relationships, depression and at the end, how God pulled me out of the muck and mire and set me on a much better path.








Welcome to the place that sucks up most of my time. My books and blogs are fact, fiction or a mix of both and they are written in several different categories.

So far I have two published books of poetry called, Twilight to Son Shine and Life Changes. Also published are, a short story called Family Doctor, six newspaper articles and four published photos. 

All of my work; including books, stories, quotes and pictures are copyrighted by me. We have a guest blog section and all of their work and pictures (if applicable) are copyrighted by them. Hope you enjoy your time here and please feel free to leave me three unrelated words in the comment section below.


My site is still a work in progress, much like myself. Please understand, that I’m an amateur writer trying to learn my way through the letters and periods. There will be mistakes, so feel free to help me along.

  1. Hi Erma,

    I am so sorry, but I have no idea how your comment escaped me. It’s as if it just showed up on my screen this morning. Thank you so much for the strong compliments.

    I do have a second book of poetry out now. It’s called ‘Life Changes’ and it follows the same course as my first book. I’m halfway through a third book of poetry. It will be called ‘Write it in Pencil’. The thought behind the title is the fact that life does change on a regular basis, so we should be ready to change our mind and our course of action.

    I am thinking of another book called, ‘My Quotes Explained’. I’m not sold on the title yet, but it will be another short book explaining each of my quotes and have a few stories to fill it out.

    Again, I apologize and thank you.
    Jim McDonald
