About the Author

Thomas Kemp is a sixty-one year old divorced man and the father of two grown sons, a daughter, and one lovely Russian daughter-in-law. He started writing poetry for his own enjoyment when he was nineteen years old and a Marine stationed in the Far East. When asked what compelled a young service man to write poetry he would say "There was something inside of me that made me write every chance I got. I wrote on anything I could find in those days; napkins, coasters-you know, those ones made of paper-even tablecloths." Thomas finally sat down long enough to write his first novel starting in 1993 which he finished and published in 1996-a book called The Road From Here To Where You Stay, a poetical thriller and love story woven within the murder plot of former President John F. Kennedy. Cleverly written to intrigue and seduce¿Thomas, as Poet, clearly shows his ability to weave the violence of war and the murder of a president with cleverly placed poems and words whispered among the pages with loving grace and romance. Be enriched and enthralled and read the romantic words from a man who has become a familiar poet to many, who is today called...YOUR POET IS.

I read the latest book by Thomas T. Kemp this morning and knew again why he had become my favorite author. You asked how I can say this when I compiled and edited the book for him and was also fortunate to help him on his first book, The Road From Here to Where You Stay? Well, poetry has always been somewhat of a mystery to me. I read some and wonder what it means. I read others and each word speaks to me.

And so it was with Your-Poet IS: Poetry and You. No matter how many times I skimmed or read the poems by Thomas over the years, I was amazed and awed this morning to read them afresh, new-together in this book. That is just why Thomas is my favorite author and his book of poetry explains it clearly.

Thomas speaks directly to the readers. No matter who you are, you feel that he is sitting with you, speaking the words. No matter how many times you open this book, what you read will be fresh, new, waiting to "talk" to you. Kemp is a natural born storyteller.

As I had compiled the poetry, I worried about format, punctuation, and capitalization, misspelled words. How foolish I was to try to ensure consistency when life is not consistent and Thomas speaks of life...love! I realized that the final copy I had submitted to him had not been used-thank goodness! For it was stiff, consistent, and absolutely totally correct.

The galley presented to me; however, immediately began speaking to me...had I read this poem before? Why did it seem to speak to me differently? Ah...I see. Thomas has added the magic-the poetry of his words and now, finally, I understand. His changes brought forth meaning to the words, and in doing so, he made each an individual message for us to receive and embrace.

Thomas' poetry presents his love to the readers.

If you've ever wondered whether love really exists, you must get this book. What Thomas says is true. You feel like these poems were written for you. I keep this book by my bedside and when my faith falters, I pick it up and read a few poems just to remind myself that somewhere out there is a man who can see right through to my soul.
