About the Author

Becoming an established writer has been my dream since I was only five years old. I wrote short stories and poetry starting at that same young age and decided that writing is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. The idea of bringing life through words to me, is like playing a God and giving birth at the same time. At the age of sixteen years old, I began pursuing an education in creative and freelance writing. I''ve taken a course in creative writing with Stratford Career Institute, a freelance writing course with Thomson Education, and I am currently enrolled in Long Ridge Writer''s Group. I've had poetry published in only a couple of newsletters, but my real passion is for story-telling. I wish to continue my education in freelance and creative writing.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Autobiographies abound in the market at times, many of them interesting reads with great thought from the people who pen them. Other times they are narrated and translated, and something is lost along the way which doesn't allow one to get as close to the person they want to know as they'd like.

It is rare when someone comes along who rises above all of that to bring such a book to a whole new level. Not just an autobiography as much as if the author sat beside you, opened their diary, and began reading to you some of their deepest thoughts. Sharing with you who they are in a very serious way. No masks, no hidden agendas, no standing on ceremony or little white lies. Simply and honestly revealing themselves for who they truly are. This author has done that and I applaud her for the amount of courage and strength it took to make that happen. I go beyond applause, I don my pom poms and downright cheer.

I will let this work speak for itself, although I will say I am very happy to know this author more because of this work. A brave, intelligent, talented soul who's book will not disappoint.

I simply adore this book...It has so many creative short fact/fictional stories that keeps you wanting more, and the poetry can only be thought up by a truly creative person. I got the chance to meet Carmela Hayslett and she is a wonderful person and author! Thank's....Jeff in (Indiana)

I highly recommend this book for readers of all ages. While reading the many short stories you may find yourself laughing or crying or saying "that's me!". While reading the poetry be sure to have a box of tissues handy because this author reaches so far down into the well of heartache and loss, love and triumph that you will surely be touched and may find yourself reduced to tears...as was I. While reading Carmela's personal writings, you will find yourself either agreeing with her (as I did) or you will find yourself ready to wage war in a debate with her. It just proves she has certainly done her job well to make the readers think.

You cannot put it down once you start, and I promise you will not want to! I laughed, I cried, I was in awe that a 19 yesr old wrote this book. This girl is a GENIUS and will make you all re evaluate your outlook on love, life and religion. BUY THIS BOOK!
