“Individuals are listed because of the positions they have attained or because
of noteworthy achievements that have proven to be of lasting value to society.
Fame alone is not a criterion, nor is high fi nancial or social status. Only
demonstrated accomplishment can earn a place in Who’s Who in America.”
-Marquis Who’s Who in America ®
Studying Creative Writing, News Gathering, Acting, and Philosophy at the
University of Nevada Las Vegas, the once reluctant Poet went on to produce
for the stage, radio, and Cable TV working in the Arts now for over 40 years.
After writing poems that earned publication and several awards in 1990, Alan Paine published
his first collection of poetry; ODE TO MADONNA and Other Poems. The Marquis came
calling in 2005 and spiritual enlightenment came once again in 2013. Along with evolutionary
revelations herein inspired by the divine feminine, a second collection of poetry completes
the destruction of a decaying paradigm; Crumbling Sandcastle Designs; Return of the Goddess.
Now on a spiritual journey through the heart of humanity, it appears destiny taps a once
reluctant poet and atheist to bring Objectivists into spirituality and perhaps beyond.
