Douglas L. Wilson grew up and has spent most of his life in the small rural Northern Michigan town of Grayling. Doug is a member of the Grayling High School Alumni Hall of Fame, and he is a graduate of Central Michigan University. Doug has recently retired from a 45 year career in education, youth counseling, and family social work. Doug and his wife Tracy continue to reside in the Grayling area, and they are frequent visitors to Doug’s alma mater in Mount Pleasant.
Doug has been a poet for over 50 years, and Well of Sorrows is his third collection of published poetry. This book focuses on some of the darker aspects of life. While most poets tend to avoid these topics, Doug is not afraid to wade in.
As is the case with Doug’s first two books Echoes and Shadows and Into the Black, Well of Sorrows will touch your emotions and cause you to think.
