Paul McGlamery lives in Suffolk, Virginia. He is a husband and a father, a poet and a dreamer. Paul works full-time as a customer service supervisor for a international shipping company, yet his role as a parent to a ten-year old daughter and a six-year old son is his most demanding and rewarding occupation. Being a father informs and shapes his life completely. Paul believes in nature, love and harmony. He hopes that one day peace will be more prosperous than war. He knows that life is full of surprises, and being selected as ELJ Publications’ 2014 The We Will Plan Big Things Poetry Prize Winner definitely caught him by surprise.
Everything We Create Smells Like the Earth is the result of five years of writing verse about the circle of life. Like most people, Paul has lived and loved, but also experienced heartbreak and loss. This collection is his testimony, his theology, his therapy.
Paul is co-author of A Companion of Lesser Brilliance written in collaboration with his good friend Eve Brackenbury.
