F. William Broome

F. William Broome
A native of Georgia, Bill was born on April 9, 1920 “and there’s not a dammed thing I can do about it!!!“

As a veteran of US Army Field Artillery and Army Air Corps, 1941-1945, Bill is finding an outlet for emotions held within for sixty years. Although not a combat soldier, he lost many friends who died or were injured in France, serving with an artillery unit of which he was a former member. When discharged he had served two and half years in the Army Air Forces as a communications specialist. His stations included Hawaii and the Philippine Islands.

After two careers in business Bill retired and moved to the mountains of North Georgia where he enjoys the peace and quiet of a small college town, Dahlonega. He is a major participant in the city’s Annual Literary Festival, which furnishes outlets for his free verse poetry, and book sales.

Writing came late but Bill finds it to be a pleasurable passion. He published his first book of free verse in June 2003, “Kicking Leaves Barefoot”, which is a collection of 100 works in a mix of the old days, and the frustrations of modern times. His second book of verse, “Windmills Beyond La Mancha” has been released and is available by mail. Bill inscribes each book sold by him. Details on where you are able to purchase Bill’s books are included under the Recommended Reading Index of the IWVPA Website.
