About the Author

Bruce B. Wilmer is a native Long Islander, raised in Manhasset, NY, who in 1976 decided to pursue his improbable dream of turning his avocation of writing poetry into a livelihood by forming his own publishing company with his wife, Sydney, a former teacher. Residing and working in Huntington, NY, until 2003, when the two of them relocated their company to an 11,000 square foot facility in North Carolina, he has continued to pursue his writer's dream and has broadened his creative perspective living in the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Starting out with a pair of obsolete Chandler-Price letter presses, which the two bought at auction in 1976, they published Bruce's poem about their newborn baby and sold it in hospitals and gift shops in personalized form. That initial poem has grown to more than 350 titles in their line, most of which were inspired by his own experiences or the personal experiences of others.

Bruce is the sole author of the Light Lines(r) Originals poetry products published by their company, Wilmer Graphics, as well as the author of six other books of poetry, including HIGH ON A LIMERICK (1974), FEELINGS (1987), LOVE POEMS (1990), BELIEVE IN YOURSELF: POEMS OF PURPOSE (1998), TIME CRIES: A POET'S RESPONSE TO 9/11/01 (2011), and POEMS FOR THE ONE I LOVE (2013).

What he calls his "purposeful poetry" has been sold in thousands of stores of every type nationwide and in over 45 countries in two languages. His verses express thoughts of love, friendship, family, inspiration, encouragement and communication. They are typically displayed on various types of wall scrolls or carried on little laminated cards called Wallet Stuffers(r).

His greatest satisfaction comes from hearing the heart-warming stories and personal responses of readers to his poems. Making a difference and inspiring others has always been important to him.
