Preston Mark Stone "I was born in Marietta, Georgia, and grew up in Maryland. My mother emigrated from the Philippines to work in the sciences, and my father is a Virginian of Irish and French Huguenot descent. I inherited my mother's quick mind and my father's quick wit, and somehow this led to poetry. I've traveled a lot in the United States and have lived in Minnesota, North Dakota, New Mexico, California, New York, Massachusetts and now Philadelphia. I tell people that I've drifted around so much because I needed to see my country in order to write about it; the truth is, I went out to see if other people were as strange as I am. It turns out that everyone is wonderfully strange; it takes poetry some courage to embrace it, and a special kind of reckless courage to put it into art. My poems arise from meeting points between my country's strangeness and my own. Most days, this is a lot of work--there's a lot of writing down and crossing out. But some days, it's easy--I just put Whitman in one pocket and Dickinson in the other and go for a walk." Preston Mark Stone's
