A book of poetry, some serious ones, others humorous, if not downright 'off the wall.' Paul J. Volkmann, a journalist, professional photographer, and entrepreneur for over 52 years, has considered his passion for writing a gift from God. In 2011, he published a book titled 'Off the Wall Favorites.' It contained 57 of his first 358 columns which he wrote for the Latrobe Bulletin newspaper.
As an opinionated columnist, he is still contributing his writings to that newspaper which are read around the world. He also writes about nature in a column that is also featured weekly called, 'Inside the Outdoors.' Not only does he cover the various seasons for harvesting various game, but as he likes to state, "Anything that is not inside is outside, and if it's out there, then I plan to write about it."
