Vincent Lowry


1) What is your author name and in what state do you live (or country if not in the US)?

J T Milford, Louisiana

2) What is the title of your newest book and what is the genre?

Evocation, Inspirational and religious.

3) What is the book about? 

These poems express certain times, feelings and moments in the life of J T Milford. They touch on light, music, nature and things often hidden. Five sections divide the book. Some sections wander through images and places in the authors past. Some are feelings from two previous marriages, others are meditations on war, violence and peace. “Evocation” is a potpourri of thoughts, images and feelings. It will make the reader feel nostalgic for
moments past and wonder for the moments to come.

4) Where did you come up with the idea?

This is very strange, no one particular idea. All of a sudden a poem would appear and demand to be written. Understand, I was a terrible student in school. In fact, one of my poems is titled School Days in which I write about 70 years of school nightmares.

5) How long did it take you to write it?

30 years. I previously wrote a chap book, but did not like my writing, so I threw the poems away and started over.

6) Did you learn anything from the project?

A lot. What I did not know about writing poems, grammar, punctuation, putting together a book, work on formatting and a hundred other things. In fact I knew nothing. I also, know little about computer software.

7) Do you have an author website and/or blog? How about a book video?

My son is working on a web site. No video. Website: -password evocation!20

8) Do you have any success tips to pass on to fellow authors? How about any great editors/cover artists? 

Read BEFORE you start, How to read poetry like a professor. By Thomas C. Foster   I was very happy with Bookbaby’s work.

9) What genres do you like to read? Are you open to reading new authors and reviewing their work?

I stopped reading novels a few years ago, but now at my age I prefer poetry. Yes I am open to reading new authors. I am not really qualified to review an author’s work.

10) What is your favorite book of all time and why? 

No one book, but every book I read greatly enhanced my life.

11) Fun Question: Do you have any pets? If so, what kind?

One cat, Name White Cat, A large male stray.  We get along because I follow White Cat rules.

12) Fun Question 2: Do you own an electronic reading device? If so, what kind and how do you like it?

Lap top computer, that is it.
