An American soldier wrote poems about relationships, loved ones and even his enemies while on his military tour of duty in Afghanistan.
"After a few years, I began to get inspirations and subjects in my sleep. I would wake up and just start writing, not knowing what my finished product would be. Then I took a long break in my writing, not knowing that I was really working on a book. While deployed overseas, my writing began to pick up again."---- Every word of A KING'S GENETIC MEMORY: The Royal Inspiration was written outside the United States. It was started in Iraq in 2004, and was completed in 2009 in Afghanistan.---- "I began to feel like I were a king of pure royalty and didn't know where these feelings came from. They began to surface more and more in my writing, so I began to research my family's name and ask my grandparents about the feeling of royalty. They confirmed that we had descended from royalty many years back. That's how I received the theme of the book."---- This American soldier inspired by God, and the descendant of kings, hopes his poetry will inspire others in the belief that anything is possible in a world filled with so many possibilities.----
