More About the Author

From mathematician to author - one might think what a strange transition for a writer of poetry! Not so, considering I am only the messenger for I write from His hand to mine, from my heart to yours.

Poetry is a way of transcending the boundaries of conscious thought. Its spiritual realms are echoes from the heart inspired by life and God's love that whisper of yesterday. The poetic verses of my books epitomize expressions of inspiration generated from random thoughts, comments from others, images portrayed, or creative reflections of feelings to warm the heart and lift the spirit.

Each reader is invited to engage in poetic writings that offer humble expression as a means for sharing true feelings from the heart: down-to-earth, without restriction, with simplicity, of a fundamental nature, and with God's blessing.

Format: Hardcover
Even though the comments from the kid rank in the context of back-biting and lack of respect for the author, there are actually some parts that warrant merit. Some of the poems reflect random thoughts, which were not portrayed in appropriate quatrain. However, the overall intent of the poetry is truly demonstrative of echoes meant to be inspirational to the reader.

The review resounded of a person who has a personal vendetta against this author. For whatever reason, comments of this nature should never be allowed and should be handled respectfully face-to-face.

Echoes From The Heart by Sharla Lee Shults took me on a wonderful vacation to a quiet haven and I didn't even have to leave home. It was delightful to settle in with a cup of tea at the end of the day and read these poems that were written with exquisite language in a manner that was easily understood. Some of the titles include, "Images", "Fuzzy Willow", "Calm the Heart" & "This Tear's for You". Buy this as a gift for a friend or, better yet, for yourself. It promises to be a treasure on your bookshelf.

Ms. Shults did a grand job writing her book in a way that those learning to understand poetry can find their way. It is precise and heart felt. I felt that she drew on her own memories which of course is where most authors pull their experiences and writing for others.

I especially enjoyed Silent Words as it spoke to me about my own relationship with some special individuals. After reading the comment made from another reviewer, I decided to lend my copy to a couple of other people to find out how they felt. One was a lover of poetry and two others learning the writings of poetry, finding most too confusing to understand.

Now this opinion and rating include mine and the three other people and each of us had our special poems we all selected as our favorites but in general, we loved the simplicity of Ms. Shults's writing. She should indeed continue to write and share more of those special memories that will talk to us in different ways.

Not all books are for everyone and that is what makes each book written a special contribution to our literary world. If we did not have Indy or self published Authors, we would not have found some of the very best in history. They all start somewhere.

Thank you Ms. Shults for this contribution to the readers of the world and best of luck to you. You can be proud of your penmanship. I have had the honor to read several of your books and blogs enjoying them all. In many ways this book, Echos takes us on a journey through life allowing us to reflect on our own memories. Well done!!

0 of 1 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on January 17, 2005
Format: Paperback
This book has only one poem of merit. Otherwise, the author's entire

SELF-PUBLISHED "VANTITY-PRESS" ramblings show no

talent; which reveals the author's need to self-publish!!

Her poems describe in words... instead of in descriptive narrative;the mark of a definite amateur of no talent.

Ms. Shults needs to stick to her good looks and leave

the writing to those of true talent.

I rate this book ONE star for there is ONE poem that might

pass the muster. Otherwise, the author has no usable talent; her writing is shallow and without meaningful feeling to the masses. Perhaps her family might understand her poetry. Alas, her leaves need left to family gatherings and spare the masses from redneck ramblings.And $999 is a lot to spend to self-publish such nonsense.
