Mansfield resident James Windham has been writing poetry ever since he can remember, but it took a horrific accident for him to anything with his artistic hobby.

Windham suffered a debilitating disaster at work back in 2007, which left him bed ridden with numerous broken bones. It was then that James says he received a random email from a poetry website, which inspired him to take his avocation to a new level.

Windham self-released his first book titled "Poetry Expressions" in late January, containing a compilation of poems he wrote over the span of eight years. The local author says he used his three young boys as motivation to complete the publication, saying that he wanted to "inspire them to think greater things".

Windham says the book has "something for everybody" and is very excited for others to take part in his work.

You can get a copy of "Poetic Xpressions" at amazon.com for the low price of $9.40 or email James at [email protected] for more information.
