Larry Melvin was born and raised on Orcas Islands, the San Juan Islands, Washington. He moved to
Oregon in the Fall of 2006 in search of new beginnings. Formerly a carpenter of many years, he has
been working as a caregiver and certified nurse’s aide for the past 6 years, working with the elderly and
handicapped persons, in a variety of roles. My love of the written word comes from my mom’s influence
throughout my life. I have been writing songs, poetry and prose for many years, but have never pursued
publication. I write from the profound and personal, to the daily amusing ... my observations and
experiences of my life.
