Hello Appalachian Authors Blog

* * I am a Poet, Painter and Musician (born in Washington D.C.) living in the Blue Ridge Mountains with my Wife and three Dogs. My family comes from a diverse background of Appalachian, Native American and Celtic ancestry.

I find connectedness through various forms (poetry, painting, music) by insisting on spontaneity. An image that I paint could very well become a chorus in a song. Paying close attention to my dreams and the soft voices inside my imagination, and allowing these to shape within my being’s center (an emanation of my heart), this is the affirmation of the symbolic through faith. An invisible loving which manifests itself through patience and is never controlled. The hidden becoming known. My work will always seek an affirmation or communion while creating a liberation of the ordinary. A visionary poetic journey of almost twenty years, Project End Of Days is a celebration of “heartsongs” that will inspire.

T. Byron Kelly (born in Washington D.C. in 1966) is a poet, painter and musician. He holds both a Bachelors degree from Virginia Tech and a Masters degree from Radford University in English. Byron has also taught English on the college level (Virginia Tech, Radford University, New River College). Byron lives in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia with his wife, and three dogs.
