“Scapes includes landscapes, heartscapes, mindscapes and soulscapes, but there are no escapes.”
A Slam Poetry Manual was published by the American Library Association
in 2003, and sold several thousand copies to libraries and individuals for slam poetry contests.
Lone Star Heart
my book of Texas poetry
was published by Lamar University Literary Press in 2016

“Whether the reader is a Texan or someone with no knowledge of the state, Lone Star Heart will bring new insights and warm, sublime meditative moments, indeed, the book, when taken as a whole, could be understood as one long meditation. The narrative poems, some poignantly personal, like his powerful elegiac tribute to his father and his daughter, Kite Kin, are full of factual insights and accented with Johnny Bowen’s heart-felt paintings. Baldwin, whose poems I have been privileged to enjoy reading for the many years he has been perfecting his art, are always fully informed close observations of the natural world sprinkled with the mystical—landscapes of the physical and the ineffable.”
Dave Parsons, 2011 Texas Poet Laureate
Chronicles of Frank, Some Short Tall Tales of A Texas Rancher, contains seven short stories and six cartoon illustrations for them by my friend and wonderful cartoonist, Gary Miller. It was published by Inner Eye Press in 2016, and is available from Amazon in both paperback and Kindle editions.
