Author Bio

Janelle Barker is a mother and wife who loves the closeness of family. Often a private person, Janelle shares moments with people that are close to her. Having moved from city to country life, her passion for poetry came in her 20's yet the desire to truly create her works in a collection came later in her life. She felt shy readers would not hold confidence in what she wrote and not connect to her work until encouraged by showing those close to her; most reacting emotionally to her years of thoughts and words.

RRP: $11.95

Disarming, warm and always accessible, Janelle Barker's poems make ordinary experiences glow.

Everything that suffuses her emotive expression is here: love, compassion, insight, lyrical precision and the clear, simple honesty that reveals how life can turn in a moment. Musing on undercurrents and connections between family, nature, memory, motherhood and the world of circumstantial events that have created our culture and our fears.

The poems in this aspiring collection begin on the surface and then delve us, gracefully effortlessly, to a far more thought-provoking place. Grounded in experiences and perceptions, with all human mysteries and consolations they resonate with a passionate, sensuous honesty that only a new Indie Author can expressly create.

"A poet worthy of the graduation to professional with words of prose that move and aspire emotions from the heart with simplistic beauty and openness...five stars." Kenneth, IndieBooks Reviewer
