The true beauty of a rose (love) is that it responds so intimately and wonderfully in accordance to how it is kept, treated and respected; and there are always thorns there to remind, should one forget.
Rich Jax (aka ‘Fegger’) resides with his wife, Terry, and four of his five children (fifth being in college), in the quaint New England town of Brooklyn, CT.
He began his writing aspirations at the age of 11, penning poetry, song lyrics and short stories. He published his first poem at age 14 (defrauding the contest rules by embellishing upon his age and credentials). While attending college, University of Wisconsin--LaCrosse, a mentoring English Professor, Dr. Jay Norris, submitted collections of Rich’s poetry (unbeknownst to him) to a regional literature publication and the University’s magazine; and his work attained the cover and feature submissions in both publications simultaneously. Until recently, Rich has refrained from publishing any of his contemporary or archived writing efforts; and, only now, is beginning to trickle a diverse body of work to the public that includes: poetry, short stories, songs (lyrics and music), children’s books/stories, and editorials. As time and solace dictate, he aspires to complete two novels, Clay and Empty Sails, which have remained as unfulfilled projects for decades.read more
