It started with a hand printed book of junior high school love poetry. I went on to create an award-winning children’s activity book without even trying. So I decided it was time to write and publish MORE books. Here they are. ENJOY and thank you for BUYING them, I only publish that which I would buy myself!

Go You Gets a New Fan

 I follow the blog of opera singer, Charlotte Hoather. Her blog is always filled with such joy. This young woman has a career in performing that is blossoming, As she carves out her place in history, she takes us along for the ride.

 So, I am reading Today’s Post and guess what I see at the close? THIS!

Wow, I mean WOW!  I knew she had purchased the book for she told me, in a private message, how much she enjoyed it. I never expected this beautiful support, via her blog. I am touched.

I did not ask her permission to lift this photo, so I hope I am forgiven…

Thank you, Miss. Charlotte. If I ever find myself on your side of the pond, I would be honored to autograph it for you.

 Thank you to everyone who purchases My Books and tells even one other person that they recommend them. Sure, most people who write and publish books would love to put the phrase, Best Selling Author next to their names and be able to live off of the royalties. However, it is something like this that makes your day in a way that reminds you of why write and publish in the first place.



Honoring a Woman with a New Book

In honor of the birth anniversary of my sister, Lorraine Parent, I am announcing the paperback release of my new book:

Why choose today? Because Lorraine drew the COVER ART!  Yes, my amazingly talented sister gave me permission to use this drawing and I wanted to celebrate her gift as well as the gift of her life at the same time. Thanks Sis!

 A Haiku Perspective 2018 is a year of my life, presented through poetic observations. While it’s not your mother’s Haiku, each poem is laid out a traditional haiku format of 17 syllables spread out over 3 lines. Even if the poem is longer than 3 lines, it still maintains the 5-7-5 syllable line count for every 3 lines.

Those who have already seen this book, tell me they laughed, they cried and they went back and read certain pages over again just because. It makes me feel good to know that what I felt translated to the words and that the emotion with which each piece was created was relatable.

 What more could a poet ask for??  Head over to my Author Central Page and buy my book!  (gee, I guess I didn’t put that in the form of a question, sorry)  Seriously, this is my 12 self-published book and I am thrilled to add it to the family!

We invite to come by for cake and ice cream (chocolate of course) And we invite you to pick up your very own copy of A Haiku Perspective 2018

An Angelic Cover Reveal

What would the holidays be without pleasant surprises?

Just in time for Christmas…

The songs of the hearts of Angels guide us, lift us and fill our lives with hope and love. They harmonize with our heartbeats, ask us to trust and remind us that we are precious. They call to us tenderly, helping us find comfort. Encouragement is but a request away. How is this (and more) all possible? Because the songs of the heart are pure love. When our hearts are singing the songs of love, we connect with Angels. Open your heart to connection with Angels, with Angel Messages Two – songs of the heart.

Unlike a book that takes a story and divides it into chapters, Angel Messages Two – songs of the heart, is a book of messages (songs) that can be read one right after another or one at a time. From day to day, a different message may speak to you. Open this book  anytime, to find what is perfect for you (or someone else) at that moment.

The pictures in this book, remind you that Angels appear in a variety of forms while the Tanka brings to life, the deeper message each of the photographs. Angel Messages Two – songs of the heart, is perfect for anyone who has ever wanted to connect with Angels as much as it is perfect for anyone who already has a relationship with Angels.

The messages are presented in poetry that we call Tanka. Tanka is a form of traditional Japanese lyric poetry that uses 31 syllables spread out over 5 lines, to convey its message. The word “tanka” translates to “short song.” The short songs of this book help us to be aware of our deep, abiding connection to energies we might not be able to see but can feel in our hearts.

To be in the presence of Angels is soothing, warm; reminiscent of being around the most supportive energy you can imagine. It can also be energizing, electric and indescribably emotional. When an Angel makes its presence known, it will be when you most need the confirmation that you are not alone. You always have a home in an Angel’s heart and they are excited to be at home in your heart.

Angel Messages Two – songs of the heart will be here SOON!

When the paperback and Kindle versions are ready, you can purchase them where my other books can be found: My Author Central Page
