Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Henry Whittier-Ferguson traveled West in the late summer of 2009 in search of fame and fortune. Finding neither, he resolved to write poetry. He’s still probably around there somewhere.

"We each carry lines of poetry with us. Words that others have written float back to us and stay with us, indelibly. We clutch these "life lines" like totems, repeat them as mantras, and summon them for comfort and laughter."
