Guest Post by Author, Richard Buchanan


I am pleased to have author, Richard Buchanan, here today to introduce his new book, Richard’s Rhyming Poetry. He is a talented poet and writer who I had the pleasure to work with on his new book as his editor.


Richard Buchanan is a retired executive from a Fortune Global 250 company. He retired at 56 to pursue his interests in writing, investing, fitness, and cruising.

Rhyming poetry done well, can be very pleasing to the ear and fun to read. And when the poetry tells a story one can relate to in some way, then I think the poet has succeeded. Some of my poems are based on actual experiences, while others are simply created from something I’ve heard or perhaps seen. I painstakingly create my poetry with true rhymes, consistent rhyming conventions, uniform accents, and strict syllabic rules. Some poems are long and some are short, but all of my poems have been crafted with tender loving care.

Here is the link to Richard’s lovely book.

I reviewed the book below on Amazon.

Richard’s Rhyming Poetry: 20 poems from the heart and mind (Paperback) 5 Stars!

This is a fun and entertaining collection of poetry by a talented writer. Richard Buchanan shows a wonderful sense of humor, timing and rhythm in his poetry. There is something for everyone in this eclectic mix. I thoroughly enjoyed reading and editing this collection.

I look forward to more from this creative author.

I am sure you will enjoy this book as much as I did. Please go to his link on Amazon and check it out.

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Remember: Reading Gives You Wings to Fly!

Blessings & hugs,
