Harry Gilleland

Shreveport, Louisiana, United States


I am a 66-year-old Southerner, born and raised in Macon, Georgia, who's lived in Shreveport, Louisiana for the past 36 years. I am a retired professor (scientist/teacher) of microbiology at a medical school, but my passion in recent years has been writing poetry. I post my poetry on various Internet poetry forums. My poetry has appeared in several poetry ezines and four published collections of poems and short stories. In 2008 I published my latest poetry collection, which was my third book of poetry, entitled "Poetic Musings of an Old, Fat Man", a 158-page book of storoems and poems through Lulu Press. (For preview: I write poetry mostly in a style I termed "storoem" for a story told with poetic techniques. In addition, I have published a prose fantasy adventure novella entitled "Bob the Dragon Slayer", as well as a contemporary romance novel entitled "White Lightning Road". My latest book, published February, 2011, is a prose novel entitled "Aldric & Anneliese". It is an historical fiction, action-adventure, love story set in the sixth century Eastern Europe. Its publisher is 4RV Publishing LLC (see ).
