My Name is Don Niles. I have a lovely wife from Newfoundland, Canada and two fine children. I have been with the Erie School District for five years. I have degrees in Floriculture and creative writing and I love writing and reading poetry..
I have been the librarian at Wayne school for the past two years. I am a U.S Navy veteran and worked as a quality management auditor at Plastek for 18 years. I was also one of the original gorilla gram gorillas in Erie.
My three favorite things to do are; reading classic folktales to anyone who will listen, puttering in my flower and vegetable gardens and sitting on my sunny porch, reading a William Faulkner novel while listening to a Cleveland Indians doubleheader on the radio.
One of my favorite poems:
Love is like a pineapple
Sweet and undefinable.
