Larry Brown

Larry Wayne Brown is an emerging poet and lyricist. His teachers recognized and encouraged his writing gift, and one predicted an eventual poetic enterprise. Larry cultivated this talent, and balances a successful engineering/sales career and proofreading for fellow professionals with his creative writing. Themes of his lyric poetry cover a wide horizon, includingmusic, nature, humor, seafaring, and philosophy.


Long-time friend and composer J. Michael Dorough selected several of Larry’s early poems for compositions, and commissions him to write original lyrics for music often premiered in notable venues.
Images That Last  was Larry's first published book of poetry, and he continues to write inspiring lyrics.
