Judyth Piazza chats with Forrest Fyr, Author of Poet Tree 'Forever Memories'

By Judyth Piazza CEO (Editor)

Born in Haverhill, MA and raised in Bradford, MA Forrest Fyr had spent his early years listening to music and imagining a world full of unicorns and dragons.  He started writing poetry in the late 1980`s and established himself as a poet in 1991 with the creation of over one hundred poems during the year of his high school graduation.  Since that time, Forrest has written over 400 individual poems.

Forrest attended University of Massachusetts in Lowell, MA between 1994-1996 where he studied chemical engineering, while working full time with a semi-conductor manufacturer.  After becoming burnt out he soon became a financial planner in southern New Hampshire and educated himself within the life insurance industry for 5 years before his health declined in 2004.   Throughout this time span Forrest continued to write poetry, engaging in different methods of writing, but continued his unique style of recording when he wrote each poem. 

Forrest. left college before earning his degree. It took quite a toll on him to work and study at the same time.  It finally did catch up with him while working in the insurance field where he became more ill.  After some time he discovered that he was sexually abused as a child and was groomed by two adults.  This in turn led to the arrest of one individual.  After coming to the conclusion that he was not going to suffer any longer he decided to move on and publish his works. Forrest wanted to start over and erase some of the memories that haunted his past so he got out of the hometown area in which he grew up.  He lives with his fiancee, his Jack Russell Terrier Orion, several cats and a cockatail named Faith.
