John Repp has loved to write and has had a unique and genuine way of expressing his feelings and putting them down on paper since he was 16 years old. He especially enjoys writing poems, short stories, lyrics, and songs. As John was growing up in a small suburban town on Long Island, he did not read much and, as a result, did not develop his writing skills. It was only after he attended college and majored in 18th- & 19th-century English literature that he was inspired to learn and grow as a writer, and his literary and writing skills improved dramatically. His appreciation for creative writing continues today and has become a very personal and gratifying hobby.
