Author Biography - Welleran Poltarnees
Welleran Poltarnees characterizes himself as "a normal, perhaps boring, member of the human race." Most would not agree with his assessment. Poltarnees spends his life searching for the memorable image. This search leads him to a relentless siege of garage sales, auctions, libraries, flea markets and antique stores. He has collected thousands of pictures books, old and new. He travels extensively, always searching. Poltarnees collects useful elephant objects, plastic charms, Jai-alaina, wooden rulers, cloth animals, children's card games and etc. He has seven children, each with an exotic name. He is more comfortable in a suit than in casual dress. He loves the rain, usually wears a fedora, and attends more than one hundred classical music concerts a year.
