Author Bio:  Greg Asimakoupoulos
Greg Asimakoupoulos has been called America's pastor/poet laureate. He is the author of Sunday Rhymes and Reasons, the latest book published by The Partial Observer. This much-anticipated release is a collection of his most popular inspirational poetry and features many of Greg's Rhymes and Reasons weekly columns on the P O website. A prolific writer, he has ten other books to his credit and has written more than three hundred magazine articles. In 2000 Greg began writing weekly poetic commentaries to help pastors reference current events in their church communications. His Sunday Soundbytes gave way to Rhymes and Reasons in 2003. "I view my weekly poems for The Partial Observer as political cartoons comprised of word pictures," Greg admits. "I intentionally incorporate hyperbole into my word-play in order to provoke discussion or to make a point. I am a poetical commentator."

Greg Asimakoupoulos (pronounced AWESOME-ah-COPE-ah-less) is an ordained minister, freelance writer and newspaper columnist. He and his wife, Wendy, have three daughters and live on Mercer Island, Washington.
