Duane Johnson is a retired journalist who treats his poetry as an oral art form. He has published a volume of poetry entitled "Evolution's Promise" and is currently working on a novella and two other volumes of poetry.
Lives in Topeka. Married to a social worker. Two grown children. Modest house with gray siding on a dead-end street. Chain saw, fishing gear, and kayak in the garage. And the nearby 400-acre lake and surrounding woods is his laboratory.
