About the Author

John F. Rowles is an award winning composer and has now has moved into the world of books. With "Manku", he mixes wit with sarcasm, real life with parody, and reason with the unreasonable.

"Manku" came about while reading posts on social media, sparking a creative thought for responses. Unexpectedly the ancient poetry of haiku came to mind...even he doesn't know where the idea came from! The responses won the favor of many friends and family and a book was born.

John's fingers were worn out trying to write "Manku" following the traditional 5-7-5 syllable theme of haiku...counting is not his strong suit. Luckily, he made it through to put "Manku" together for provoking thought, inner reflection, a few laughs, and showing a parody of life through the "every man" lens.
