Walter's Photo

Walter Harris Rooks Jr. is a thirty-three year old African-American poet born March 8th, 1972. He says, "My writing has appeared in AIM magazine and most recently The Eintouist. While it is essential that I share my African-American perspective, it is also important for me to share my human perspective; thus my writing is as diverse in subject matter as it is in appearance. My task is simple, to write, or die trying. I have an obligation to share my voice through both professional and amateur avenues. I am blessed, married with four beautiful children. Thank You...Love, Peace, Prayers..." Mr. Rooks was born and raised in Yuma, Arizona and now resides in Fallon, Nevada.
