Collections of WillyToad¶
105 works written from 1972 to 1979. My first book which ended with me burning it & calling it quits... frustrated
with my works. My friends encouraged me to not give up, yet I refused. After much anguish on both
sides I searched my desk, books, drawers, friends, heart and mind; I was able to come up with all the ones burned.
I began again and came alive writing more than ever in the next two years.
One Hundred and One of the Best Signatures of WillyToad¶
- 101 works written in 1979 & 1980. Altho' the title may seem arrogant, the irony in it
is that they were the only "signature" or works during that time. The end of this book came as I moved from Kentucky
to Texas. This book also marks my almost complete transition from poems to songs.
The Houston Years of WillyToad¶
- 133 works written in 1980 & 1981 while living in Houston Texas. Mostly songs, this was my
most prolific writing period. It ended with the death of my brother and my return home.
What's Left of WillyToad¶
- 193 works written from 1982 - 2009, my slowest period which was smothered by my first marriage.
For The Love of WillyToad¶
- an empty book.
1001 Arabian Nights of WillyToad¶
- 167 works from 1997 to 2006, while I was deployed to the Middle East Area Of Responsibility, United States
- a children's book that names, in chronological
sequence, the literary works of Dr. Theodor Suess Giesel for Random House Books... as well as tells a story of a young doer.
O', Theodor Comes Back!
- a planned sequel to O', Theodor which encompasses
the Beginner Books series by Dr. Theodor Seuss Geisel & Daisy Head Maizy, a posthumous book released after O', Theodor
Straight From Point A, Straight To Point B™.
- a children's series about a boy who gets lost
going home and is forced to change his thinking in order to find his way.
The Unconcious Mind of WillyToad¶

that begins with descriptions of characters by worldly elements and is finished with the interaction of the characters in
a series of the same name written by DonnaDrake*.

boredom with herself, but ends with her realizing how unique & envied she is.
The Reanimation of WillyToad¶
- 36 works from
1998 to 2002. Creativity comes back as poems/songs with my divorce plus one year.
Duty Calls! WillyToad¶
Cares... Thank You, Pennsylvania!
- 30 works written from September 11th, 2001
to September 11th 2002. I took one year to work on this memorial for the families/friends of terrorist victims of Washington
D.C., New York City & Pennsylvania. The title is about how I felt emotionally as much as driven by duty as a United
States Airman. "Duty Calls" (D.C.) "WillyToad* Cares" (World Trade Center) are symbolisms to me of what I know is there, but
can no longer see for the lives and property lost.
