Welcome Guest Blogger and Pro Wrestling Legend, Leaping Lanny Poffo!

Super-honored today to have professional wrestling legend, Leaping Lanny Poffo, as my guest! He recently signed with Solstice for one of the most incredible books of poetry you can ever read.



Here’s a sample of one of the poems, plus a look at the gorgeous illustrations inside.

             The Living Legend

Once upon a wrestling ring

But not so long ago

Mr. Bruno Sammartino

Was the only name to know


He stood up to Buddy Rogers

And then “nature boy” went down

Less than 60 seconds later

Sammartino wore the crown


He’s the real “Italian Stallion”

That’s a fact you can’t ignore

His career had more success

Than Rocky I, II, III, and IV


The Living Legend lives again

For every single fan

He’s on the microphone each week

Right next to Vince McMahon



I know what you’re thinking. A pro wrestler writes poetry? The industry doesn’t exactly tout the intelligence of its’ stars on a daily basis. But this book is definitely worth picking up. 


School for my girls is finally starting again, so here’s to getting back to a normal schedule for work, writing, and blogging!
