Touched By Two Souls: Sleeveless Emotions is a project Charles Burgess started and pulled in Jerrmond Walker in to be a part of this book because of his admiration of the live performances of this local Milwaukee poet.

Jerrmond "JDub" Walker was introduced to poetry as a means of personal therapy. A friend brought him to a local poetry set and his love for the art flourished almost immediately. Known to Milwaukee's poetry scene as "JDub", listeners of his work understood that when he hit the stage -the truth would flow. Bold, strong and sometimes even crass to the sensitive ear, JDub's stories of tainted love, social and community dissatisfaction, and an occasional sexual exploitation won him the favor and respect of a thriving poetry community.

For some, his venture to share his work in written form may be a surprise, but for many, it's long overdue. Though this is his first, published work, it surely will not be his last.

Charles Burgess lives in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and now has taken up writing as a full-time job. Father of eight, with five boys and three lovely girls. Charles is looking to deliver two hundred books or more in continued career, and hopes to captivate his readers with tantalizing stories.
