A Sisters Serenade
(a book of poetry, lyrics, and short stories)

Overview


This is a 140 page collection of 53 poems, 5 songs, and 2 short stories. The content found in "A Sister's Serenade" celebrates the people and experience of the author, Will Reuhl. A wide variety of topics and use of many poetic forms including Will's own example of "speed poetry" can be found. The collection, like life, is Random.

There are so many life lessons that sprang from the thoughts and feelings evoked by the music Will's sisters shared with him as a child. "A Sister's Serenade" strikes the chords of a boy growing into manhood and the chorus any reader can also hear and feel. Let the music take you away...

About the author


While this is the authors first book. He has been writing his entire life. Will comes from a large family and learned to express himself at a very young age. He grew up in a suburb of Chicago called Lombard, "The Lilac Village". His hometown was known for having the largest variety of lilacs in the World. Will has always loved the outdoors and has been drawn to water. You will see a lot of these influences in his writing. Why water (the title of one of his poems)? Yes, maybe because he is a Pisces or finds comfort from the sounds of waves or maybe because of his grandparents. Well, Will was fortunate to spend all of his Summers growing up on a lake in Northern Minnesota. His grandparents owned a resort on Big Pelican Lake; where he learned to swim, boat, and fish. Minnesota became a big influence in his life which led him to choosing to attend college in Winona, Minnesota. In college, he wrote for the newspaper and articles appeared on the front page frequently. Being the third William in his family, he learned from his grandfather and father, whom he was named after. His father was a salesman and after graduating from college, he too became a salesman! Will continued writing as a hobby, while professionally selling beverages for 36 years. Now retired, he finds himself having the time to share his writings with you!
