About the Book

About the Author

The poet, 'born again' at age eleven, became a child of promise, beloved among his contemporaries. Having escaped the early years of innocence and mischief, he moved on to years of awkwardness and isolation. As an adult, he became a brilliant personage, submitting papers on relativity to Princeton University, where the late Dr. Albert Einstein had taught. At age fifteen, he had become 'disturbed,' leaving a potential great epic of prose and verse incomplete, but had a poem from it published in the American Poetry Association's 1985 American Poetry Anthology. Much recognition followed as Mr. Dorsey ascended into the top ranks of the International Society of Poets. Mathematics was Mr. Dorsey's first love as a child, as he memorized his time tables up to 12 x 12 as a six-year-old kid under the strong discipline of his grandmother. He won the prestigious United States National Math Award twice as a young adolescent. At age fifteen, he was the only student in his class to take an honors version of Free Enterprise. Four years later, he passed the National Association of Securities Dealers Series 6 examination at the young age of nineteen. Unsuccessful as a registered representative of First Investors, he went on to graduate from a notable business school. Encouraged to further his education, he went back to school to get an accredited degree. There while reading a book called Dawn Over Zero, he learned Einstein's conversion principle, and from then on decided to major in physics. The poet had contributed numerous poems to various prestigious organizations, like the International Society of Poets, American Poetry Association, World of Poetry, and others. He has won awards of merit such as an Editor's Choice Award from the National Library of Poetry.

He also has been awarded certificates of recognition for contributing to our nation's cultural arts, and has been awarded the prestigious Who's Who in the South and Southwest for the years 1999-2000.
