About the Author:

I was born Bobby Waddell Kellum in Thorpe, West Virginia to James Cornell Kellum and Mary Ann Penn. I am the eldest of ten siblings. I attended elementary school and high school in Thorpe. After graduating high school, I studied for two years at West Virginia State College, Charleston, WV and subsequently received a B.A. degree from The City College of New York City. The first recollection of any type of poetry in my life were fairy tales that were read to us, many of which we learned "by hard." During my elementary school years, I remember reciting Longfellow's "The Psalm of Life" for a school program and how great it felt. I was also fortunate to have a brilliant professor, Mr. Lewis Freeman, our principal, who also taught me in sixth grade and who presented each of his students with a deck of "Author Cards" including all the famous poets and novelists, such as Longfellow, Dickens, Poe, et al. Mr. Freeman also read the "Illiad" by Homer to us. He inspired in me not only a desire to read books but also a desire to write. By the time I reached college, I discovered such luminaries as Ralph Waldo Emerson, a great thinker and poet and the novelist/humorist, Mark Twain whom I greatly admire. Also, all through my life I heard the funny, dialectic poetry of Paul Lawrence Dunbar; The "Creation" by James Weldon Johnson was a favorite performance piece. I've also enjoyed the influence of others writers, like Toni Morrison and James Baldwin who wrote beautiful prose. But what has most influenced my writing has been my own life experiences: its joys and sadness, its desires fulfilled and unfulfilled, and the eventual spirituality that has designed all that has been created through me. - Bobby Wadell Kellum -
