Just to make everyone else look stupid #_# .. the so-called Nigerian Poet is a Nigerian Scam as the true author of the St.Patrick's Day Inspiration is JoAnne Tuttle from a book of inspirational poems published in 2010 and 2012 by Publisher iUniverse: Crystal Inspirations by JoAnne Tuttle
She worked for twenty years as an Administrative Services Officer for the University of Texas Health Science Center at Dallas, Southwestern Medical School (UTHSCD), retiring in 1994.
She married Emery Tuttle in 1971, attesting he is her soul-mate and her inspiration for adventure. She loves to travel, claiming "adventure" is her middle-name.
In 2001, at age 67, JoAnne attained her private pilot's license; three years after her husband Emery acquired his license at age 76. Emery was a WWII pilot, but had not flown in over 50 years and had to start fresh. Since obtaining their licenses, they have traveled the U.S. together in their single-engine-home-built RV-6A plane. Adventure is their cup of tea.
They designed and built their home at Cedar Creek Lake in 1991, and have enjoyed many projects and adventures together over the years. They are active in their church and community and their life's statement continues to be - "It's not over 'til it's over" ...
JoAnne has always written poetry, but only in past few years did she collect her poems from old envelopes, notebooks and scrap paper to compile them into a book. In 2010 her collection of inspirational poems were published by iUniverse publishers and republished in 2012.
