“Artistically delightful. Incredibly creative. ” – B. L. Jensen

What a find!” – Ann

“They’ll make you smile, laugh, or reflect.” – Calsea

Poems for a Platypus is not a Detective Stark mystery, but he makes a guest appearance. Little did anyone suspect that he wrote poetry. This book was published April 2, 2013.

A platypus is an amazing creature whose habitat is fading, but they do like Bylina’s poems and haiku. Come read their favorites. For the first week April 2013, “Poems for a Platypus” was the #1 bestselling poetry book in the Australian/Oceanian marketplace and 12th overall in the U.S. for 20th Century poetry. Who’da thunk it?

Here’s an example.


Platypus Playing

Fun and delightful

Eating, swimming, and mating

A life never dull


Now go and enjoy their world.
