L.W. Lewis had his first children's poetry book published in 2003 titled Why Do Flies Eat Doggie Poop. This success encouraged him to follow up with Poodles, Tigers, Monsters & You in 2005 and the award-winning book The Tickle Tree published in 2007.
His latest book, Poop, Butt, Booger and Snot was the hands-down favorite title chosen by children who voted during his school book tour of 2009. He hopes to encourage reading through humorous poetry and does school visits for free.
Lewis was a navigator on B-52's during Viet Nam where he flew 69 missions. Later he became a pilot and flew with the famous Flying Tigers. He was an advisor to an the 172nd Light Infantry Brigade (Army) in Alaska and made over 200 parachute jumps
