Meet the Poet
Gary Maxwell was born in north central Kansas and lived there a grand total of six weeks before hitting the road for a life of wandering with his Air Force family. He started playing the guitar in high school and began writing songs shortly thereafter, but it wasn't until the final semester of a BS degree in Computer Science - 30+ years ago - that he started writing poetry (Shakespearean sonnets, to be precise). Gary divides his time between reading (his first love), writing, and keeping body and soul together as a day laborer on the information superhighway. He maintains an online presence at Fools' Blog, and tweets @yeoldefoole. He currently resides (appropriately) in Reading, Massachusetts - just north of Boston. Read.
