Raymond A. Foss (1960) was born in Westfield, MA, the oldest of five children. After moving to Claremont, NH at 16, he attended the University of New Hampshire, earning a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science in 1982 and a Master of Public Administration in 1984. He graduated from Franklin Pierce Law Center in 2004. He started writing poetry while serving on the Barrington, NH School Board in 2000. His first reading was for an assignment from the Reading Specialist to each board member to bring a piece of poetry to share at the April 20, 2000 School Board meeting in honor of National Poetry Month. When one of his first two poems received a favorable reaction, he began to write poetry more regularly. He created the site Poetry Where You Live in February 2004. There are now over 13,356 of his poems and 901 of his photographs on that site. When not writing poetry, he spends his time trying to be the best Christian, husband and father to three wonderful daughters he can be.
