Adventurers and inventors, workers and lovers, soldiers and immigrants make up some of the stories. After leaving the shore, even more saints, sinners and story tellers are found.
Bill Black spent portions of his youth along the shores and inlets of the Southern US coasts. As he moved away, the memories of the shores never left him as he explored new places, people and stories. This is his fourth book of story poems.

About the Author
Bill has performed as a magician, poet / storyteller and MC for shows throughout this country and over a dozen around the world.
Bill began writing a more Western style of poetry when he realized in the mid 1990's that it seemed a more natural "voice" for his type of writing. Due to his dedication to the sound of poetry, he recorded three CDs of the poems he used in his shows. While his current writings echo the West, he is writing more about other parts of North America.
Since 2011, his works have appeared in two anthologies and three prior collections of his own work.
For the insatiably curious, Bill graduated from North Carolina State University. He was then commissioned as a 2nd LT in the U. S. Army and received an Honorable Discharge. He was employed continuously enough to pay his bar bills and related research costs.
Bill credits the internet and current social media for his ability to move from a locally ignored poet to one who is internationally ignored.
