Richard Sherrer is actually retired from the United States Air Force about 14 years ago. He had lived in Korea while in the Air Force in 1972 and 1973. You might be asking yourself what brought him back to Korea. I guess you could say that it was a lot of love here, for the country, the people and especially for a Christian woman that he met on the Internet. She convinced him to return to be with her. So he came originally to teach English in July of 2000. They were married July of 2001. Now turned poet which is subject that is near and dear to his heart. His love for Christ and God is an inspiration to all who read his poetry.
Born in Easton, Pennsylvania his father, Newton farmed for the majority of his life. It was his father that convinced him not to continue in the 300 year old family tradition as a farmer since the size of the farm was too small for to survive. That was the main reason for joining the Air Force in 1969. His Mother, Catherine was an inspiration spiritually as a church organist for over 35 years.
His wife is actually inspired him to start writing. God inspires him what to write about through. He does not claim to be an expert on God or the Bible. He is just a Christian who has become enlightened to write poetic verses from the Holy Scriptures.
