My name is Gary Lee Beard. I was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1959. I was raised in a small town in Indiana. I had hard working parents that inspired me to be the best that I could be. I had four brothers and two sisters. We all worked hard as we were growing up. My mother passed on in 1996 with leukemia. My father is still on a farm, he is currently 83 years of age. I feel that I have a talent in writing. I currently have three Editor’s Choice Awards in poetry.
As you read through the pages of this book, I hope that you will sincerely enjoy it as much as I did writing it.
