About the Author

E. B. Staples is originally from West Palm Beach, Florida. He first started writing poetry in high school, simply expressing his thoughts about life in prose and rhyme. Shortly after graduating high school he enlisted in the United States Air Force. E.B. performed duties as a missile maintenance technician, aircraft mechanic, an aviation maintenance instructor, and avionics technician in his nearly 26 years of duty serving his country. While stationed in Germany he traveled to Paris, Brussels, Luxemburg, and Prague to name a few. He later traveled to Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Spain, Italy, Crete, and Turkey. After six years in Germany he returned to the U.S. and was stationed in North Carolina, and then to South Korea for a short tour of duty. He had an opportunity to visit Yoido Church with Pastor Cho, and Prayer Mountain while in Korea. This amazing experience help transform his life and brought about a great spiritual awakening. After retiring in 2000, he moved to Texas and currently works for the State of Texas and assist citizens impacted by disasters. His writings are poetic and deeply spiritual. Often awaken at night by words that stirred his soul, he often jotted the words down. The next day he would begin to reflect on those words and write. These words evolved into poems that he shared with family and friends who were deeply touched. E. B. published his first book “Soul Poetry” in 2004, a second book “The Mighty Storm” in 2010.
