It was a special treat to stop in the Poe House Museum in Baltimore, MD last week and see my poetry book The Man with the Ice Blue Eyes in their gift shop.  And so I hear…”It was many and many  a year ago in a kingdom by the sea, that a maiden there lived whom you may know by the name of Annabel Lee; and this maiden she lived with no other thought than to love and be loved by me”  The brilliant Mr. Poe..my poetic inspiration.
