About the Author

Lescott (pen name) grew up in rural Michigan, spent 20 years in the Navy, then worked at various jobs while furthering his education and providing for a family, and is now a college professor. He began writing poetry as a student at William and Mary College while still in the navy. It became a venue to record personal thoughts and feelings. Deeply religious and patriotic, he uses his hobby of writing to share some of his experiences and thoughts from the many years of 'life' with friends and family. Now, through the urging of many, he shares them as a published book.
