An ascetic romantic, John Patrick Acevedo began his quest for God and love while he was a freshman at Clemson University. As he showed up rather nervously to his very first college course, he was quite stunned to see a beautiful professor, Amanda Dyer, who would prove to be instrumental to his writing. During his sophomore year at Boston University, he started to “write poetry that was exactly the same as the Holy Bible.” It was only after graduating after Boston, however, that he committed to writing poetry. In 1995, he began a twenty-year career in Best Buy, becoming a top-margin producer across all its departments as he continued his love of poetry. His family is originally from Lares, Puerto Rico. His grandfather, a Trump-like salesman, and his father, John Acevedo Maldonado, who was a loyal MIT student of physics, inspired the author at a young age. Acevedo went to accompany his father almost every other year to MIT’s Annual Weekends. His father died in an unfortunate cardiac arrest in one of the leadership conferences at MIT, a day after saying in a final text to his son, “All is well.” Since Acevedo did not want to die when he lost his father, from 2014 onward, he went on to publish five more books, launch his own web page, and shoot several video poems shared on YouTube. He continues to find a degree of sadness and a degree of bliss as he explores his own writing.
