Franklin Dewitt Ireland
Franklin Dewitt Ireland is the co-author of a poetry book, Cool-Aid Anyone?, which was edited by Pyramid Books Editing Services. He and his co-author, Donnell Sampson, were athletes at Stetson University where their friendship developed.During a recent book signing at Pyramid Books, Frank shared that he was concerned what other male athletes would think of him if they knew he wrote poetry. It was Donnell who gave him encouragement. Years later, they've penned poetic verses that have messages that speak to the heart of our existence.
Frank is also the author of a children's book sure to delight those in Pre-K through fourth grade, It's Jake. He has other works in progress which should also be well-received.
