About the Author
Creative Talents Unleashed is both thrilled and honored to announce the upcoming release of Jus Sayin’ by Author Jeffery Martin.
Poet, storyteller Jeffery Martin author of nine books (5 books of poetry, 3 children’s books, and a play), uses life experiences as his inspiration behind what he shares with the world. His first book “Weapon of Choice” won the 2008 New Jersey Beach Book Festival for Best Book of Poetry and was also an Honorable Mention in New York and London Book Festivals of the same year. His book of poetry “As Sons Love Their Mothers” received Honorable Mention in the 2011 San Francisco Book Festival. He also received Honorable Mention for his children’s book, “Silly Billy” in the same festival.
Mr. Martin has been very active in the community for some time, founding the theatre group B.E.H.O.L.D. for inner city youth in Rochester, New York, where youth were introduced to poetry, dance, martial arts, fencing, theater, drumming, clowning, acrobatics, art, ceramics and public speaking.
He believes that words can be a source of strength and healing, using his life as an example. He is currently employed by Los Angeles Unified School District and works with children with special needs.
Be prepared to be inspired! ‘Jus Sayin’’ is a beautiful compilation, woven from deeply relevant thought and inspiration, that the author has shared over time, on social media. Having an indefatigable human spirit, this author challenges us to see life as an everyday miracle, an opportunity for personal growth, inner strength and love for human kind. It is a deeply touching book about love, forgiveness, self-acceptance, respect and gratitude. Written in easy speak; it is a joy for the reader.
A highly motivational book, it will urge us to see the silver lining in all circumstances, viewing our hardships as valuable lessons, forgiving what we think to be unforgivable, being of service to humanity, especially our children. Jeffery Martin has searched his soul, knows himself well; his only yardstick for measurement is his own. The honesty of his spirit is felt throughout this beautiful book. If you enjoy books such as ‘Chicken Soup for the Soul,” Jeffery Martin has taken soul comfort to a new level, with a dash of hot sauce. It is a book you will want to revisit time and again, seeking out beautiful words of wisdom, there is a passage there for every circumstance.
“I’m not working for a better tomorrow, I’m working for a better today. Tomorrow doesn’t need me, today does,” is one excerpt which left me smiling, thankful for having read this refreshingly positive and powerful book.
-Brenda-Lee Ranta, author of Myriad of Perceptions & Allegories
