Anthology ~ I Have A Name $14.95

I Have a Name

We live in a society whereby there is an astounding increase in what is known as ‘the invisible disorders.’ We may be living with one or more of them ourselves, or perhaps it could be our parent, our child, our grandchild or the person working at the desk beside us. These hidden, or not so hidden disorders are a part of our modern-day life, symptoms of hereditary, dietary, metabolic or chemical unbalances in the body – yet they exist and are very real for the person who lives daily with any of them.

There are many people silently suffering as a result. They are walking through life feeling lost, unsupported, misunderstood and alone; yet there is hope in acceptance and inclusion. There is hope when we give these disorders a voice, a name, a face and a place in society. The collection within these pages are voices, names and faces; the accounts of real people by real people. They either live with a disorder or have been deeply touched by knowing someone who does.

It is with my profound thanks to all the contributors, for opening themselves up, with the willingness to share these experiences with the world. “You Have a Name.”

Anthology ~ Down The Rabbit Hole $12.95

Down The

Tick tock says the magic clock

In a language that’s part of the soul

Get in line for the gate

You don’t want to be late

For your trip down the rabbit hole…

Our everyday lives are filled to the brim with mostly ordinary things, like work, taking and picking up the dry cleaning, school, homework, dinner, and striving to have enough time for family and friends. We are busy in this modern world, filled with reality… and yet something is missing.

But what if you could sit down for just a little while and escape to someplace special….someplace magical and quirky? What if you could escape by slipping down the rabbit hole to a place of your choosing? What if you travel somewhere you’ve never been and be back before anybody even knew you were gone? What if reading the adventures of others inspired you to embark on some adventures of your own?

It gives me great pleasure to invite you inside the pages of this book. You will find all kinds of lovely people, places, and things. You can meet Alice or Dorothy or the infamous Mr. Rabbit. You can slip easily down the rabbit hole and be transported to worlds that contain the ordinary and not so ordinary.

“Down the Rabbit Hole” is a collective work of writings from poets who like you, live their lives inundated with the challenges and demands of everyday life. They have unlocked the door to boundaries we all make for ourselves and turned those boundaries into fantastic, beautiful worlds to both help ease the boredom and perhaps spark the imagination.

Anthology ~ Poetic Shadows – Ink and the Sword $12.95


Thanks to poets and word-weavers such as these, and books such as this, I am incredibly lucky that my reality is shadowed with wonder and fantasy, brimming with adventure and mystery. Too many of us are warriors, fighting our own silent battles with the thought of victory salting our eyes and bringing hope to our battered hearts.

My body has never experienced the grueling determination of a joust, but my heart and mind know all too well the cheers of an excited crowd as my lance perfectly hits the target, knocking my opponent from his horse. And I should probably mention that I’ve never sat upon a horse. In fact, I’m terrified of them. I’ve never held a sword in my hands but somehow I know the Siberian and unyielding steel of Excalibur.

I like to think we all possess a touch of fantasy, to some degree. Perhaps our whimsical ways and strange fancies are what make us so very human. We all need to escape from time to time. One of my favorite things to do is to search for rabbit holes and dive right in, feet first, eyes wide open.

Try to imagine a world without fairy tales, imagine a world bereft of magic. What would become of a tender-hearted child’s bedtime story? What would happen to the Peter Pan in all of us? Where would the dreamers, the star-child, breathe?

Anthology ~ Imperfect Paths $10.95


Open this book and unlock Pandora’s Box…

Experience the heartache that goes hand in hand with broken vows and severed bonds. Witness the crippling fear that stems from emotional blackmail, psychological abuse and depraved oppression. Feel the hopelessness that leaves us reeling in the wake of death’s trauma. Reminisce of days gone by – of trust long since lost, a dying love. Shoulder the weight of self-doubt and low self-esteem, sink to the depths of hell in the absence of self-respect. Succumb to society’s expectations and fall short of your dreams, give rise to the opinions and prejudices of a stranger.

Keep reading to the end, and the realization that regardless of the stumbling blocks and shackles we encounter along life’s journey, we must not fail ourselves – for that would be a true injustice. When we fall apart we must strive to heal and mend the precious broken pieces we have become. When it feels like we are drowning in an unrelentless thunderstorm, remember to keep swimming towards the rainbow, push towards a brighter day and the peace hidden within the calm of the storm.

Success is different for everyone, but the journey towards our destiny should always be one of self-love, understanding and unfaltering faith. Imperfect paths lead to truly beautiful places, go on, see for yourself…

Anthology ~ Shades of the Same Skin $13.95

Shades of the Same Skin Cover

The bell pepper is a fascinating species to watch as it grows. In its youth, the green bell pepper is harvested before it begins maturity. It has a distinct bitter flavor that works best in a savory chili. In the mid-stages, yellow and orange peppers are picked but are not as popular as the green variety. With a fruity taste, these colors are better in salads or kebabs. In the final stage of maturity, the pepper turns red. It is sweeter than its predecessors and used to create pimento and paprika spices. One tree produces the same pepper in a variety of shades, giving us an assortment of flavors.

Humans are no different than the bell pepper. We are shades of the same skin, filled with flavors that enhance the diversity of the planet. Each generation blossoms with something new to pass down to the next and it is how we have a melting pot of culture. We have been grafted and blended over and over again; sometimes it is not that easy to trace our ancestral roots. But the heritage that runs in our veins is what makes us who we are. We take what has been passed on and fuse it with new traditions and ideas, adding essence to the cauldron of humanity.

Lately, it seems as if the stew has become too bitter. The world is in need of a vigorous seasoning and it is why the poets in this book are willing to share their ethnicity. Each one will give some insight into their culture, music, clothing, food, traditions, and even share a few recipes. Some will engage in unique stories and folklore. Others will take us back to their childhood days and compare it to the experience of children today. A few will even welcome us into their homes to share items from their heritage.

This is also a book of unity. Its purpose is to show that without diversity, the world would be a very boring place. The bell pepper has kin from the mild to the hottest variety in so many shapes and sizes. Each one has a specific use and our dishes would suffer without them. Each poet in this anthology has a unique style because of where they came from, their experiences, and who they are. Their words are printed on these pages to inspire why we belong. We are all vital ingredients for the recipe to keep the world stirring.

Anthology ~ Writing Tips $10.95

Writing Tips Volume 1


Do you dream of being a writer? Have you already dabbled with words, but still need some help finding your style on paper? Or are you one of those who have so much to write, but just can’t find the time to get the task done? This book could be your saving grace. Put together by a group of talented writers from the Creative Talents Unleashed family, Writing Tips Vol. 1 is for any level of writer.

I believe everyone can write. If you can carry on a simple conversation, then you are capable of writing. Some just don’t know where to start. You don’t have to be educated or have a degree to be a good writer. Some of the greatest writers in the world didn’t have that opportunity when they started writing. If you’ve written in a journal or a letter, you’re already an author. You just have to find the passion and motivation to write. This book covers a little bit of everything a writer needs from start to finish.

Anthology ~ Divided Lines – A Poet’s Stance $12.95

Divided Lines

In a world of ever increasing advances seemingly created to make our lives easier to manage, envisioned to bring us together, to draw us closer, we are still in many instances isolated and at odds and validly apart. Something is missing, there is a snag, a rip, a hole in the spiritual fabric that we all see; yet we continue to fail to address.

It has been said by self-proclaimed philosophers, theologians, scholars’ and politicians that the abuse of words can be a danger, there are those that believe words are a leading factor in what ills our society. Of this we do not deny in full, there have been abuses, history is but a melody to that fact, yet it is also true that words have the innate capacity to bridge, to heal that which divides.

Opinions, views, religions, nations, people, even love divides. The focus of this book and the poets here in, is to give breath to a wide range of issues both small and controversial that lie beneath the surface. Things that we are often hesitant to discuss. In saying that, I will offer that the role of a poet is not to persuade or to add more rhetoric to the static we hear. A poet’s responsibility is to shine the light of awareness, to create a platform for dialogue, for healing, to gather up the images in an attempt to understand what we see.
