Creative Talents Unleashed is both thrilled and honored to announce the upcoming release of  Skeletons in My Closet by Author Tamsen Grace.

These poems were not written for a book. These poems were put together in a book, but they were written for me. They were the way I kept a tenacious hold on a world that was falling apart around me. These poems were my lifeline to who I had once been, but more importantly they were a gateway to who I was to become.

 Through these words I dealt with ending an abusive relationship, fought through a brutal divorce, faced breast cancer and finally discovered all that I had in me.

 My poems were cathartic, I released all my pain, my fears, everything inside me that said I wasn’t good enough; all my skeletons. I set them free and in the process healed myself.


Preface . . .

We all have things from our past that tie us down or prevent us from moving forward. We like the world to see the glossy version of ourselves, the one we post on social media. The beautiful, smiling, ageless, strong and successful version that we create, our own personal work of autobiographical fiction. The reality is our past, with all those skeletons rattling around in our closets is what forms us, what makes us unique.

Our struggles define us and make us who we are meant to be. This is a book about my past, my struggles, and my times of trial and triumph. I have lost love, fought through cancer and divorce and reinvented myself. I no longer care about having a glossy version of myself, I have set my skeletons free. I have learned to love myself, scars and all.
