James Deahl was born in Pittsburgh in 1945, and grew up in that city as well as in and around the Laurel Highlands of the Appalachian Mountains. He moved to Canada in 1970 and holds Canadian citizenship. He’s the author (or, in the case of Tu Fu’s poetry, translator) of twenty literary titles. His most recent books are North Of Belleville and Opening The Stone Heart. A cycle of his poems is the focus of a one-hour TV special, Under the Watchful Eye. Both the video and an audiotape have been reissued on CD and DVD by Silver Falls Video. In addition to his writing, he has taught creative writing and Canadian literature at the high school, college, and university levels. He no longer teaches, and for over a dozen years has mostly been a full-time writer/editor/translator. James Deahl lives in Sarnia. He is the father of Sarah, Simone, and Shona.

A well-known poet whose work I feel especially close to is Denise Levertov. In much of her poetry she celebrates the grace, beauty, and goodness of creation while expressing sorrow at the blindness and violence of fallen mankind. The second piece in Rooms The Wind Makes is my letter in poetry, sparked by the glowing beauty of Lisboa, Portugal, to Ms. Levertov. Many of the poems in my book deal with her two major concerns as well as the brevity of life and the universal fact of suffering and death. - James Deahl
