Roosevelt Casey
"I've had minor success placing stories and poems in publications like More Dead Trees, In Vivo, Planet Pop and The Insomniac, but that's about it. And I always use the pseudonym "Roosevelt Casey". It's a combination of my father's first name and my mother's maiden name. I think it brings me luck and I know it keeps me honest."

Wm. Michael Owens
I was raised on a farm in south Texas till I was 10 years old. At the age of 4 years old I was adopted by a kindly man Wm. H. Owens and raised by him. Dad treated me as one of his own sons till this day.

Dad worked for the Government in the missile program so he traveled alot all over the World sometimes I would go with him. Slowly, the farmboy gained a greater understanding of how the World was.

The sixties open my eyes to many things! Like most kids of my generation we all experimented with drugs, not knowing the path it led. I lost some friends to drugs and drug related deaths.

My first real job was working for the Women's housing in Germany. I was the only man in Two miles for one hundred women ages 18-45 something. I got a real education then. A young man at seventeen is quite innocent! I worked after school there and I wonder... Living in Europe I traveled by myself mostly and gain as much experience of life as a young man can. I tried everything that I thought a young man needed to know. I'll let your imagination go from there. Some countries have particular interest France, Italy, Austria, Belgium, etc.

I worked as a Disc Jockey for a year while going to college (69). The job seemed to not help my academic rating at all. However, I did gain more education.!

I met soon to me my first wife Patty in college. We came back to the States and married. This marriage ended in divorce in 7 years. Patty travels the World with one of her new husbands. I wish her the best...

I re-married during the disco years and I have one son, Steve and two girls, Christina and Nikki years old. Married With Children.... I've worked jobs that peak my interest like, junk yard mechanic, shoe salesman, electrician, Fuller Brushman, sold real estate, Engineering Co., minister, owned a business, Oil co., ITS, Union Pacific R/R., inspector, varies supervisors in varies jobs, worked for civil service, worked washing dishes, dug ditches. .

I've been writing for a number of years. My first book "Living Stones" was a combination of older writings. It was put together in a year. The interesting thing is I got poems and correspondence from all over the World.

My second book "Looking Thru a Glass Darkly" was similar to the first. I stop writing books and just stopped writing for about 3 years. Included in this bio is a short list of what I did that I kept track of. I sort of stopped paying much attention to this stuff, to me personally it is sort of vain.

However, I include this as proof and as a base for information for the curious. Other wise it is wasted space. I guess since I have made over $1.00 that makes me a professional Poet too...? Well, I let others decide that. I don't write for everybody, just myself .

Ryan Coleman

"I was born on the banks of the South Saskatchewan River (in a hospital), grew up, studied acting for two years, hosted a cable access show, left home in search of adventure, decided that I was always a writer, I've spent the last two years wandering around Canada, making friends, having adventures, getting bummed out from time to time, had a lot of different jobs, including: snow-mobile trail builder, library assistant, renovating a train station, lumberjack, walking trail builder, painter, teacher's assistant, landscaper, birdhouse builder, tree-planter, tent-raiser, dish-washer, night shift grocery-stocker, mover, and currently a drywall sander in Calgary, Alberta.
