Vanilla Rains is undoubtedly a collection of well thought out verses that restore any reader's belief that poetry has come to life again. It is a collection based upon styles that transcend from Byron to Kerouac. A must read for the poetry patrons.'Jeff Holmes' poetry is like a river shedding light on darkness, illuminating life's sorrows and hopes, flowing through places with no name, but a bitter taste. Jeff writes with the simplicity of a witness, a friend, a helping hand. Each poem is like a scene from a movie whose script we know too well, the script of our lives. Like a repository for mankind's meanderings, Jeff's poems are a map to the weather of our souls. Vanilla Rains is a traveler's true friend. Wherever your next journey takes you, don't leave home without it.'Thierry KuffmannCo-author, Getting Even with Heaven

Born amongst the two worlds or rural and city realism of Indiana, Jeff Holmes was raised as an only child within one of his hometown's oldest families. His interests then as well as now continue to be retained in religions and cultures. After being awarded scholarship to Lincoln College, he became discontented with the atmosphere of the school and took up his studies again at Purdue University.Holmes eventually disbanded from his formal education altogether to pursue his career as a writer, more aggressively. He signed on with his first agent at twenty-two, and although his recognition within the college town was taking off, his reputation elsewhere was less then he had hoped for. After almost two years with the agent and seeing little as far as results from her, he finally let her go. Homes decided to take up the reigns himself and do his own marketing and dealings. This proved to be a good decision as it resulted in his first publication and a list of others. The comedy Getting Even With Heaven was on shelves in the summer of 2000 and after his poetry collection, Vanilla Rains he waited on the two following novellas, I'm Nothing in Particular and Little Norway. Holmes currently still resides and writes in Indiana; working on two more novellas he plans to have ready by the spring of 2004. When asked if he was happy with his work so far, Holmes expressed amusement to the question by saying, 'Yes, I'm happy with it; I'm just not satisfied yet.'
