5-Star Review of Me and My Three by Kathleen Marie
By Deborah A. Bowman, author
This review is from: Me and My Three: Poems of Survival for My Children and Me: The Perfect Little Family (Kindle Edition)
What do you do when your life is falling apart? How do you survive pain and suffering when it was supposed to be happily ever after? How do you deal with three boys, aged 4, 3, and 8 months all alone? Who’s going to pay the bills, put food on the table, keep the family without a Daddy all together? Yes, Kathleen dealt with all that and poured her heart and soul into her poetry, but it was her “Three,” her children, she worried and cried for most after suffering the fear and pain of an abusive marriage.
No spoilers here, but I believe in happy endings. A MUST READ book of poetry that inspires strength, determination, love, faith, and hope.
And to think … these poems may never have been shared without Kathleen’s life-altering moment. You need to find out what tragedy changed her life and opened up a pathway for a new, beautiful beginning.
LIVING IN A SHADOW is a fictional novel with an important message for all women, any man who has ever loved a woman, or anyone who has ever loved a victim. A dramatic, suspense romance delving into the machinations of date-rape drugs and the side effects that can make them lethal. Blackouts, disorientation, confusion are mixed with domination and control. Only love and understanding can help the victim accept and begin the healing process.
I’m an author who writes in different genres, including the creative urge to combine genres to give the reader an enjoyable experience with accurate research and important information. I’m available on twitter, facebook (soon to be completed) and now WordPress to share editorial and inspirational ideas or answer questions. Authors need to help each other, and it’s so easy in this instant technological age. The communication of authors direct to readers with questions, comments, ideas, etc., will make each sequel in a series or each successive novel more custom-made for readers. Writers are fanatical readers themselves, and I love to paint word paintings and/or prosaic poetical prose (my own phrases) for descriptive passages that place the reader in the scene. Yet, it is just as important to keep the plot fast-paced and action-packed, whether it be romantic drama, contemporary women’s erotica, psychological thriller, mystery, paranormal investigative chronicle, or historical fiction saga. I have delved into all of these genres, and I’m always looking for creative, new variations on a theme. I would love to hear from kindred spirits, both readers and writers. I know as an avid reader myself, my most treasured books are the ones that I learn something from as well as having captivating, can’t-wait-to-turn-the-page plots.
