Writer + Poet + Dreamer
William Rayst is the pen name of Columbus, Ohio writer William Stackpole. By day, he makes a living writing practical non-fiction for the insurance industry. This pursuit stokes the fires of his creative interests and drives him to create poetry and fiction. William is an active member of the Columbus writing group, Creative Minds Columbus, and transforms himself into a writing juggernaut each November for NaNoWriMo.
William's work appears on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Smashwords, Stepping Stones Magazine, BlogNostics and Wild Goose Poetry Review.
