Soul Poetry

About the Author:

Alice grew up in Old Town, Maine  ("Heaven") and joined the army right out of high school at age

18.  She was stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco at the  height of the Vietnam War...major

culture shock.  Her life experiences have led her to write her memoir (Ghost Child to

Triumph--from a child with no voice, to someone who speaks up against injustice), and of course her poetry book. 

Endorsements for her memoir are: Dr. Larry Dossey, Dr. Frank M. Ochberg, Dr. Elaine Weiss,

Patricia Evans, Alice Miller, Clint van Zandt, Dr. Ellen Langer Dr. Tracy Kemble, Dr. Kim

Anderson, Jacqueline Castine, and a woman who wished to remain anonymous who gave the

most powerful comment: "She stopped me from committing suicide and gave me a reason to live."

 Endorsements for her poetry:  Elie Weisel, Wayne Dyer, Nikki Giovanni, Katherine Nuyens, Dr.

Elaine Weiss, Dr. Pamela Blair

 

She believes we are all here to make a difference, and is the moderator of an abused survivors' group.

 

She won a women's scholarship, because of what she has overcome in her life and is in school

at age 63.  The premise of her memoir is that no matter what we have experienced, we do have

choices as adults, and can make some good decisions and choices for our lives. 

 

Her first love is ballet.  The two pictures are of her dance performance at Oakland University in February, 2010.  The photo of the 2 people has Alice on the right hand side (in red).

I cannot be 63...there must be some mistake.

 

Without my faith, wicked wit and sense of humor, I might be drooling in a corner.

 

Her poetry reflects her journey, and she hopes that through her thoughts and feelings, you will find  solace for your soul and the words will resonate with your spirit.

 

www.churchabusepoetrytherapy.com is her poetry, reflecting another journey.
