I have written poetry since my school days, using my pen name Rhumour and influenced by my grandfather who left us a legacy of his life story in verse. My published collection 'Rhumour Has It' is available in print and ebook formats. Recently I received my copies of the 2012 Who's Who in Poetry, one of which my daughter promptly snatched. :) I find pleasure in reciting my poems for people so also record selected poems in MP3 audio for those sites that facilitate audio. I am even experimenting with video now. :) I am currently a Success Coach on a blogging site where I encourage new bloggers from many countries to aim high, and have for a long time worked with poets around the world who wished to improve their grasp of English. Some of those poets have succeeded in getting published and I continue to encourage others to progress in the same way.
