A very active poet and writer, Nicholas was previously a soldier in the U.S. Army working in Missile Defense, but he returned home to Wyoming to pursue his passion of writing.

Clark's Turning Leaf
Clark Grant, renowned Seattle writer of romantic poetry, has fallen into a literal and literary darkness. Depression, grim dark poetry, and a failed suicide attempt tarnish his recent past. In an effort to turn over a new leaf and make some much needed changes, Clark relocates to the rural Berkshires of western Massachusetts. In the forested hills of Massachusetts Clark relearns what it means to be a friend, a father, a lover, and a writer. But will newfound peace be lost when he's again forced to face depression and suicide? Can recently-discovered goodness and light withstand guilt and loss?
This collection of poetry was written during dark times of my life as a form of self-medication for anxiety and depression. While I was deployed in the Middle East as a soldier in the U.S. Army these ailments overwhelmed me with such savagery that I was overcome and consumed by them. Being able to treat myself with writing and creativity kept me sane and functional when all else seemed to be spiraling out of control.
