Ryan's Secret Balloon Ride: A Child's Story Book Reviews
Written and published by Craig M. Szwed.
“For me, as a grandfather (and as an author), the joy of this story is that, though facing difficulty, a child need not be worried about what they are experiencing. It eases a child’s stress if they have someone who can help them understand and accept the trials of life. This was a blessed experience for me, as much as it was a help for my sick grandson.” – Craig M. Szwed, Author

How Did I Lose My Innocence?
american haiku, volume one
This has been an extremely personal voyage for me. I wrote, photographed, compiled, edited and published all items contained in this work. And although I have been writing for many years, this is the first collection that I have ever published on my own. Welcome to literary freedom in the 21st century!
Here are other publications containing works by Craig M. Szwed
I feel very strongly that writing is a gift from God to me, to help me explore life, to understand, reflect on, and share what I learn along the way. I bless God for each of my works that has been published to date.
In the 1970’s, I contributed some photographic and other work for the college textbook Families by M. S. Smart and L. S. Smart. However, the writing, editing, and publication of poetry and other non-academic works has held my attention far more snugly than more academic endeavors.
A third success followed in November of 2001, as“Mobius Generation”was published by Emily Alward (Publisher-Editor of a small but interesting sci-fi magazine.)
Not that I am impatient (wink-wink), but I grew tired of waiting for editors and publishers. As I started to take matters into my own hands, I launched a project on CD, entitled american haiku: volume one. This project was originally recorded on CD, and contains about half of my original haiku poems. The haiku poems are collated with accompanying original photos that I shot in Connecticut. I have convertedamerican haiku: volume oneinto a PDF file that you can now easily view and download from my photo and book store.
In the Spring of 2003, I received an author’s copy of Meridian Anthology of Contemporary Poetry, Vol I, Issue I. I was VERY gratified when they accepted FOUR of my very short poems to use in that anthology. Bless God!
In March 2004, my FIRST book, Pining From The Heat (and other poems about relationship and intimacy), was released to the market. That was swiftly followed by a second release in the same month,
Borrowing from my book Three Crows Hunting, the poems “Enrichment” and “No fussing. No fighting.” were published in May of 2004 in Columbia Crossroads, Volume 9, Issue 4.
Here are samples of some of my other poems and photos used together:
