About the Author

Throughout Mr. Valentine's numerous professional endeavors, writing has always been in the background as a way to creatively express himself and leave a legacy for his 42 grandchildren and 33 great-grandchildren (to date). His mother taught him how to read and write at 3 years of age, and he composed his fi rst poem at the age of 4, which led to a lifetime of recording true stories, and happenings of his interesting life. He has composed numerous pieces of music, including: Western ballads, Pop, Gospel, and Choral, writing both lyrics and music in nearly all of his original musical compositions.
Since his semi-retirement he's been inducted into the "World Congress of Poets" and his work is now internationally recognized. He has six international 1st place poems, plus fifteen other poems winning from second to 6th place.
Rex has already published two books of poetry. Several of his publications are also available and include a children's story "Tiddlywinks, The Little Horse with Three Ears", and a book detailing his experiences with water dowsing (one of his businesses of 50 years) entitled "Dowsing Discoveries: Finding Water and Other Mysteries". His works "The Rutabaga Patch" and "Spreading Chestnut Wisdom" are delightful volumes containing rhyming narratives of his childhood adventures and a few from his later life. Written in his unique and exceptional style, he adds interest and authenticity to the stories by personally illustrating them or discussing the inspirations leading to their creation, as in this volume.
