Are you a fan of poetry? Do you enjoy poems that have deeper meaning, poems written to make you laugh, or even poems that were just randomly thought up in the shower? If so, this is the read for you! From the author of “The Storyteller’s Diary”, the beloved collection of short stories by J. Edwards Holt, comes “The Reason for Rhyming” — a book of poems with many of the same mystical and heart-warming elements.

Born in North Carolina, United States, J. Edwards Holt always knew that he wanted to be a writer. After graduating high school, he attended college and pursued a degree in education, but later decided to change course and follow his dream to become a novelist and children's author.

Now a bestselling author, ordained minister, and mental health advocate, Holt spends his free time reading and helping the less fortunate in his community. He is passionate about spreading Christian messages through his writing, watching science fiction and superhero movies, and collecting comic books.


“Regardless of your age or preferred reading genre, this charming series of poems is sure to bring you feelings of warmth, joy, and inspiration.”
