About the author


Gregory Carlyle Warner is a poet, author and spoken word artist hailing from Hampton Roads, Virginia; currently living and working in the Kansas City Metropolitan area. He is an U.S. Army veteran and holds various degrees from American University, Webster University, and Old Dominion University. His art started to manifest as a young man, but it was through the journey of life, where his unique soulful form of poetic expressions fully matured. Gregory Carlyle's journey through love, military life, separation, divorce, and continued battles to be an integral part of his three daughters' lives proved instrumental in his development and eventual inner peace. "My hope is that everyone finds their true purpose in life through living life...the joys, the sorrows, the good, and the bad". Gregory Carlyle's first published work 100 Years to be Lost: A Poetry Collection reached #1 in "New Releases for African-American Poetry" on Amazon, where this work remained in the top ten for several weeks. Combined with Gregory Carlyle's personal and professional experiences, this journey takes a new turn exploring recent (and not so recent) societal challenges --- political unrest, social upheaval and life changed forever is a resounding theme in this latest piece. You can connect with Gregory Carlyle on Instagram (@whole_words) or on Facebook (@WriteItAllDown) where he shares his works in progress and snippets of life adventures with his loving wife Tara.
