Original Grace is the fourth book in the Snake Quartet and the eighth collection of poetry published by Gary Lemons.

He attended the Undergraduate Poetry Workshop at the University of Iowa, where he studied with John Berryman, Donald Justice, Marvin Bell, and Norman Dubie. He now teaches yoga at Tenderpaws Yoga Studio owned jointly with his wife, Nöle Giulini. Gary currently resides in Port Townsend, Washington.
