Derek McCasland Biography

I've written poetry and lyrics since I was about 12 or 13. It's how I vent; how I get away for a while; how I best express myself. I fronted for a rock band for 3 years, in which time I wrote all the lyrics to our songs, as well as the arrangements. I also helped with melody often. That was a great experience. It was from that journey with good friends and wonderful music that I realized I wanted to be an author (or maybe I should say writer)
