My grandparents are no longer on this side of eternity, but I was fortunate enough to know one of my grandpas for much of my life. He was quiet; a farmer; a World War II veteran; and he almost exclusively wore overalls and an old, leather cap. And today, all the grandpas that I write into my novels and poems have a likeness to him. This poem, found in Love Story, is no exception. You can find Love Story on Amazon.
Inspired by my little, Midwestern hometown, I write about rain on tin roofs, gravel roads, old trucks with holes in the floorboards, small-town summer nights, and most importantly, love.
