Meet Author Brenda-Lee Ranta


Brenda-Lee Ranta composed her first poem at the age of seven.  Throughout her life, she used prose as a means of logging her experiences in a life which has been under ‘constant construction.’

Amazing to her, is that at the age of 58, CTU Publishing Group published her first book, “Myriad of Perceptions,” to be followed by “Allegories – a thirst for connection.”  It was for her, a life changing experience, taking her from journal writing to giving her words a life beyond herself.  Her two books also were awarded five-star reviews from Readers Favorites.

Since 2016, she has been a contributor to many Anthologies published by CTU Publishing.  In the summer of 2017, she was honored to be the Creative Director for the Anthology, “I Have a Name,” which is a compilation of poetry submissions from poets around the world, on the silent disorders, prevalent in present day society, a subject very dear to her.

Brenda-Lee shares her journey with her soul mate, Hugh Dysart, also a published poet, lyricist and musician.  They are parents to their collective five children and grandchildren.  They live a life dedicated to each other, their kids, pets and their shared artforms.

It is for them an incredible journey.

Brenda-Lee’s Books

A Soul PassengerBook Description: Every man and woman longs to find a love that is unconditional. This book is the autobiographical account of a woman and a man, who against all odds, found each other; resuming something mystical that existed long before the annals of earthly time and space.

This is the actual account of two people who came into what is known as “The Sacred Union or Twin Soul Reunion.” Nothing on earth prepares two people for this encounter, but once they find each other, there is a magnetic energy pulling at them, stronger than any other human encounter they have experienced. This book speaks of personal struggles, horrific fears, running stages and the final acquiescence to what has been preordained; lest they never sleep another peaceful night.

This is not a union made of fluff or fairy tales.  Rather, it is the awakening of two sleeping

beings, who truly awoke to their inner selves when they found each other again. Many books on this subject matter, speak to the longing stage, separation and running stage, all the while agonizing, in wait of reunion.  This book explains about the inner work leading to union; but the hard work truly begins ‘in union,’ where every inner flaw, every Karmic hindrance, bubbles to the surface, to be dealt with or the couple will not succeed.

This is a book about the journey of living daily with your soul mirror, accepting each lesson that comes, while loving each other unconditionally. It is not a book borne of religiosity, but rather from that which has always been and shall continue to be. This book fills in the gaps, dispels the romanticism; speaking from actual experience, with blatant truth of what happens “when love collides.”

“Wherever you go, I shall go. Wherever you live, so shall I live.  Your people shall be my people and your God, shall be my God too.”  ~ The Song of Ruth

 I wish you peace, love, light and awakening beyond measure, while on your sojourn to Sacred Union.

allegoriesBook Description: A beautiful and lyrical collection of poetry that uses human experience, particularly loss – of love, life, self, to explore the intricate relationship between connection and disconnection.

The author brings together a powerful and expansive vocabulary to convey the extent of interconnectedness in a cause and effect existence. We cannot expect to experience forgiveness and acceptance, unity and love without knowing what it is to be shunned, broken and misunderstood.

If you know the torment of fight or flight, been dealt your fair share of damned if you do, damned if you don’t, this poetry collection is for you. It’s the silver lining you never knew you were looking for.

myriad-of-perceptionsBook Description: Open yourself up to imaginative and thoughtful prose, lyrically soothing like an endless lullaby that embraces and caresses throughout the solitary days and nights. Inhale and exhale a poetry collection brimming with vivid stories, a reflection of stunning imagery.

There is something incredibly raw and emotive within these pages, that strips bare the human soul. These verse provide sustenance for the lonely, splash color on a black and white canvas, and articulate beauty found in the ordinary. Poems like wildflowers blowing in the wind, undulating fields of sparkling emeralds and golden sunshine, a blanket for lovers to smother away their glory days.

Above all other things, Myriad of Perceptions, vociferates just how important it is to think for yourself. Each poem gives wings to words and it is nothing short of spectacular to watch them fly, fly, fly.
