“Hemmingplay,” is the pen name of the youngest son of a teacher and a nurse who grew up on a family farm in western Ohio. He has had a few disreputable occupations, including newspaper reporter and editor, and public relations flak, but is trying to make amends for his sins now by writing poetry and fiction.

His desire to write in these genres never really went away. When his children were safely off making their own mistakes, he turned on the computer one day, stared at the screen for a long time, and began again.

He has published two books so far. One, “Mermaid Sisters: First Dive” is a children’s book on iTunes/iBook. The newest is “I Came From A Place of Fireflies” published in February of 2017 as a paperback and Kindle on Amazon.
