My name is Alvin C. Romer, an Essayist, Journalist and Literary Publicist trying to see what else I can do for high visibility for both myself and my clients. My reviews, essays, articles, and interviews have been published on many sites on the internet. I’m also the publisher and editor of The Romer Review (TRR), a literary e-zine residing online as a one-stop operative for aspiring and veteran writers keeping them informed, enthused and in touch with all things literary. TRR was started in November of 2001 during a time when I needed to expand my visibility online and to have a vehicle to showcase my expertise and penchant for writing. I had been following the careers of a few of my author friends and others in the industry, and it suddenly hit me that I should create something for authors to tap into to feed and nurture their muse. Since then, the rewards for and pleasure of maintaining my site have far exceeded anything I might have imagined or hoped when the idea was just an embryonic thought. Essays are my wellspring, and poetry is an open book to my creativity. Words are pawns that I use to articulate feelings like a slow moving river without rapids, but full of reason. I want to open my world to new and exciting things and be par for the course of my written acumen.
I am a creator, an educator, an adventurer, a dreamer even... I approach the world with the eyes of a visionary, the ears of a virtuoso, and the soul of a imaginable writer. Colors reinforce my life as I see the spectrum of many hues where others see only surface matters. I see passion and possibilities when others see only problems. I love the four seasons and the simplicity of life, and the joy of a good friend. Sunsets, sunrises, and a good book are sources of inspiration, as well as a good loving woman, great sex, music to soothe me, a jazz joint with a good view, and my grandchildren. . I love what I do. I’m who I am, and what I aspire to be. I'm good at the things I can control, and dismayed at the things that control me. I learned to educate myself through reading, learned to create through writing, and learned to believe through faith in Him who strengthens me. I write because I have something to say, and you need to read it!
