COLLECTION OF MY FAVORITE POEMS I HAVE WRITTEN THROUGH THE YEARS
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Tressa Olden has had a passion for reading books at a very young age. At elementary school she looked forward to going to the library to check out a book each week. She loved the stories especially those which drew you in and took you along as one of the characters. The stories that gave vivid descriptions of the clothes worn the scenery or place where the story unfolds. She loved how the characters were portrayed and how you’re made to feel the part in your imagination. Her first job was helping the younger students to read, she was now in Junior high school. She remembers those days fondly and of course that very large projector that had to be rewound after use. Very quiet personality she read a lot of books growing up. In high school she worked in the school’s large library with hopes of one day having a book there it was 1970. Life went on and her dream she thought had as well. She worked at a hospital caring for the elderly and loved sitting to hear their stories that few folks would take time to do. She loved them and they loved her. Life went on children, husband and a day to day simple but productive life. She is a Christian and loves God but went through trials just like everyone else. For years she worked and enjoy life with her family, grandchildren. In 1999 an untimely surgery stopped her from working for a while and reading had taken center stage again. Life threw her a curve and she plummeted into writing to uplift herself from depression she guesses. Beautiful cries for help poured out of her daily. Poem after poem God was speaking to her, uplifting her and reshaping her path. She soon realized she had been given a gift. Before her home stay was over, she had picked up a pen and began writing poetry to pass the days. Long poems had turned into stories and writing had begun it was now 2004. She published a poetry book later that same year and now has 4 novels to her credit. With God all things are possible.
