John Connor was born in 1964 and has been writing poetry since he was sixteen. Following the death of his Mother and Father, John noticed that his poetry had changed. He wrote to give himself comfort and when he shared his words with others found his poems also gave comfort to them. Now, with thousands of followers on Facebook and a regular spot writing poetry for a grief management site called ‘Healing Hugs’, John is surprised at his sudden rise to fame. His work has also appeared on ‘Star Bright Angels’ and the ‘Words of Wisdom’ site which currently has over a million followers! A down to earth family man who dreams of going to America due to his love of 1950s music, John wants his poetry to touch the hearts and souls of those lost in grief.
This is his third collection and he hopes his poetry will continue to inspire and comfort you in your daily lives. These poems have been beautifully illustrated with 10 pictures by Polish artist Jolanta Dziok, created exclusively for this collection. As a thank you for all their continuing important work, John has agreed to donate 10% of the proceeds from this, his second collection to Healing Hugs, who have helped him spread his healing poetry to those most in need of it.
John has dedicated this collection to his sadly departed wife Sam Connor, who lost her battle with cancer just a few weeks before this collection was finished.
