About the Author

Hi, my name is Donald Desch. "Donald Ray" is my pen name since "Desch" is so difficult to spell correctly in a search.
What do you want to know about me? I was born in Topeka, Kansas, the youngest of three kids. I have one brother and one sister.I am currently living in Hurst, Texas, a "Mid-Cities" suburb of Fort Worth.
I am the divorced dad of two daughters: Haley, who married a wonderful young man, Tony, about 18 months ago (01/05/2012) and Emily who is a Senior in high school.
First and foremost, I am a Christian. My relationship with my Lord, Jesus, informs all of my writing. However, I am not stodgy: I like to joke around, laugh, and have fun!
I have worked as a chemical enginner in Miami, Florida and Houston, Texas. Presently, I am a cashier at Walmart where I have worked for many years.
As for my poetry, I enjoy challenging myself by writing poetry with structure: rhyming couplets, acrostic poems and haikus. In this way, I express a philosophy of mine that your emotions should be mediated by your reason and intellect.
I am a voracious reader. I enjoy "hard" science fiction, urban supernatural books like the ones from Jim Butcher and Charlaine Harris, and Stephen King
My favorite TV shows? I have been a Star Trek fan since the Original Series and I have enjoyed Trek's various TV incarnations to different degrees. More recent fave shows are: LOST, Fringe, and Revolution.
My favorite movies are, of course, science fiction: 2001: A Space Odyssey, Blade Runner, Dune, and all the Star Trek movies (except V!) and the recent J.J. Abrams reboots of the franchise.
Hey! Isn't this enough for you! Buy my books already!
Seriously, please buy my books. I hope you enjoy them and will write glowing reviews for them at your ebook retailer.

I enjoy acrostic poems in which the first letter of each line spells out a word when read down the page. The author describes 25 emotions. In each poem, the author succintly and vividly paints a word-picture of each emotion. Recommended.
