larry bauer makes his home in Helena, Montana, with an incredible fiction writer and two beautiful children. Sandra Alcosser, Montana’s first Poet Laureate, invited him to read at the opening of Montana’s 2007 legislative session. As well, FootHills Publishing has released his first volume of poems, health insurance and other matters of death, and his second: family and other seasons of change. His poetry and short stories have also appeared in Literary Mama, Poemeleon, Colors, Wild Roses in Spring, and many others. The gift of marriage and fatherhood is almost beyond poetic, but occasionally he tries to capture it on paper.
