Hello, my name is Allen Ansell, often writing with the pseudonym 'Griffonner'. Writing is my preferred way of transposing my imagination into the physical world. A fair proportion of my writing I would describe as being 'inspirational'. I am many years retired and currently reside in South West France with my wife, Linda. (My backgound picture is of a vinyard near where I live.) My wife and I have two adult daughters and two grandchildren who live in the United Kingdom. You can find more of my work in various places on the Internet, including ABCtales.com, Allpoetry.com, PoetBay.com, in Capella Magazine and in various anthologies including those of UKAuthors.com and La Fenetre.

I'm now retired having previously worked in local government . With my wife I live in a village between Cambridge and St Ives. Apart from writing I enjoy cooking, reading, walking, and DIY. My writing is influenced by my travels and life abroad, and my involvement in different religions - Christian and Buddhist, plus an interest in history and current affairs. My poetry and prose reflects my interests and life experience and is still in the process of developing into what I hope may be of interest to the reader.You can read more of dougimoody's work at https://www.poetbay.com/poetHome.php?writerId=9406.

Born in Florida in 1953, I grew up in Bellevue, Washington. My childhood was unexceptionally suburban. I knocked around quite a bit after finishing high school, bouncing from college to college to trade school to crummy jobs which allowed me to live in poverty in Seattle. Eventually, I got married, moved to the Midwest, and picked up a couple of college degrees. My wife and I ended up in Omaha, Nebraska. We have four grown children and four grandchildren. After having assembled statistical reports for an electrical utility, written online and hard copy analyses of financial markets for credit unions around the nation, and taught economics at the local community college, I now work part time at a discount store.Yopu can see more of Lawrence's poetry at this link:https://www.poetbay.com/poetHome.php?writerId=3876

Run from ordinary! Live in Extraordinary! I'm an English teacher, translator, writer and French from Quebec, Canada. I love to just relish in all the unique, extraordinary, craziness that lives within myself and everyone else. I don't like so much the mustardy smell of ordinary. I often catch myself wishing I could live in the extraordinary lands along with the characters I've created in my novels. It would be so awesome! I would immediately change realms for sure! However, I'm not nuts! Well, not completely anyway. I think. I do realise I'm non-fictional and must live in the reality of our mundane world. Although, I am a novel writer much more than I am a poet. I hope you will enjoy my writes. I love to read your comments so take the time to jot down a few lines. I'd really appreciate it.

i write to keep peace around me and light within. To breathe. Poems about journey of a resolute self-a foot soldier moving with buoyant steps in sync and gazing at mystical galaxy.
