I have just published my first book of poetry, which I have called "I Don't Do Poetry", as I am still amazed to have discovered this talent late in life (age 62). I have posted a sample of poems from my book on Fan Story, all of which have received 5 or 6 stars. Amazing !

The book may be purchased from the publisher, Xlibris,, or book sellers like Amazon.

TomyKan: I am blown away by the very generous reviews of a number of poems I've posted from my recently published book "I Don't Do Poetry" (by Tom Kanigan, my real name; not TomyKan, the logo I have been using for Fan Story).

The book can be purchased on line (paperback or e book) from the publisher, Xlibris,, or from book sellers such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

TomyKan: I have just published my first book of poetry. The title (I Don't Do Poetry) reflects my amazement at having discovered this talent late in life (age 62).

The book is listed on the publisher's web site ( and on Amazon. Search either on book title or my name (Tom Kanigan).

TomyKan: I reviewed my poetry book galley, and made only minor changes. Looks good. This is my first book, so I am getting excited.

TomyKan: I just heard back from the publisher, and, based on an initial review, everything looks good so far. If all proceeds as expected, the book should go to print by November.

TomyKan: I am thrilled that I joined Fan Story, and am enjoying both reviewing others' works and submitting my own prose and poetry.

Writing has recently become central to my life. I started poetry writing in 2007, at age 62, and found it filled an important artistic and emotional void. I am still at times amazed that I can write poetry so easily, a talent I did not know I had.

I am overwhelmed by the kind comments and generous ratings I am receiving from the Fan Story audience. Thank you. It is inspiring.
