More About the Author

My name is Aleja Robbins Bennett and I was born in East Elmhurst Queens New York by my unknown biological mother July 9th 1973 at 7:23 am. In 1976 I was raised in East New York Brooklyn by my church attending adopted parents who still serves as a deacon and deaconess up until this day.

From the age of two through nineteen they physically-verbally and mentally abused me. I was tortured, starved and neglected all through my childhood.

Alcohol became an escape for me while I associated with people-men that added to the painful past of abuse. At the age of twenty five while walking into my first A.A. meeting is when I began to write the very first poem titled Being Alive.

From there I wrote Thirteen titles, 40 Ways To Please A Good Woman, 40 Ways To Please A Good Man, Only the Strong Can Survive, Aleja's Beautiful Poetic Strategy in Recovery, Poems from the Heart Mind Body and Soul, Passions Desires of Aleja the Poet, Thoughts Deeply Rooted Within Me, Seasons With And Without Love, All I Can Do Is Stand which and finally All I can Do Is Stand Part Two, Adopted Abused And Still Standing and Unlocking The Doors Of The Spoken Word and You Can't and Won't Stop Me From my Purpose which are all Available on paper back, kindle on Amazon.

You can say that I write not just to share a story but to empower-strengthen-encourage people all over the world. My mission has been to lift up the depressed-broken-wounded-injured-sad-addicts-abuse victims-teens-adopted children all over the world.

My writing helps so many people as it allows inner healing to process within me faster. One of the goals is to stop the form of abuse or at least give people a desire to no longer deal with it.

I writes for all ages excluding some of the romance poems that might not be suitable for certain ages. The majority of my literature was written for all ages to read. My website link please donate to my organization for travel, speaking and book donations to people in need.

On Oct. 17th 2013 I surrendered my life to God and has obediently accepted my calling.

I will be resuming my show starting March 1st 2014 7pm to 9pm EST it will air live each day
The number to call each evening is 347-237-4691

The show will have a topic that it focuses on each day such as Overcoming Abuse depression addictions and Suicide

5.0 out of 5 stars Yes indeed January 17, 2011
I love the way Aleja expresses how God made her into the woman that she is today, her poetry speaks for it self and she is truly a blessing and I feel like a survivor now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sad story turns hopeful June 12, 2006
Ms. Bennett is our local poet. She vividly captures the sadness of her literally totured childhood. Her book covers a range of emotions, hatred, jealousy, love, pain, and hope.
