Billy Charles root was born in San Bernardino California October 21st 1975. The first thing he ever wrote was when he was 17 in creative writing in his 10th grade English class, it was a description of playing Russian roulette brought on by  some rough teenage years. This writing led him to the counselor’s office where later he would be admitted to Ward B of the same hospital in which he was born. At the age of 19 he moved to Oklahoma to raise his then 2 year old son and marry his high school sweetheart. Together they had 6 sons. Both came to know the Lord and were baptized in 1998, but after much searching I'm looking to people instead of the Savior mixed with many mistakes, the two divorced in 2005, but the Lord wasn't done with him yet.


In 2007 he would become reacquainted with his Lord after the gift of an angel named Tina which he married that same year and now together they have nine children and three grandchildren. Writing poetry became a passion and a personal form of worship for Billy around the year 2009.

In 2014 Billy entered his now famous poem No Vacancy in a writing contest with Creative Talents Unleashed. To his surprise the Lord would bless him again with the crown of the competition and a five-year publishing contract. Through much struggle but even more perseverance, Billy, together with Creative Talents Unleashed released a book of some of his most cherished writings entitled "Pressing On". Billy still currently resides in Marshall Oklahoma and works as a mechanic for the United States Postal Service.
