With his graphic design expertise linking vision and verse, ‘Love Is…’ is the first of a 10-book poetry set featuring Roy’s life with his darling wife Nancy, who recently passed away. He hopes everyone in love will associate with the closeness he enjoyed during his long marriage to Nancy through the prose and vibrant illustrations that are conveyed so beautifully in each of his fluent and powerful observations that make the world go round.

If I had searched a lifetime
I could never find another you
If the stars and fate are all they are
Then I know they must be true

If I had searched a lifetime
Across lands paved with gold
The only place I’d wish to be
Is with you to love and hold
