Benjamin Eelis LeGrand (Richard J Tilley):

Writer, Researcher, Poet


(You may have arrived here through I am testing this new name for a year before legally changing it. That will present an issue for past published material, books and blogs, but I will address that only after the name is legally changed.)

*Currently on writing hiatus, with the exception of the occasional poem written with a fountain pen.

Though many interests, my current primary research deals with investigating post-violence-societies (book forthcoming). I value education; but not before independent integrity. I welcome correspondence. I am an obsessive book collector. I believe in a positive, multicultural fashioning; an ingrained fabric that adroitly preserves distinctiveness; that is collective, transformative, individualized, and formed through persistent appreciation without conceding proper disposition.
