Vanessa's First Poetry
Aptly named, this is Vanessa's first published work.
This is a compilation of short stories, many of which are testimonials of Vanessa's personal experiences, and heartfelt poetry. She is reaching out to you with her tales of those private moments when it was necessary to laugh, to cry, or to love. She hopes to share those moments with you so that you will understand that you are not alone.
Vanessa's book is available at Barnesandnoble.com in both the Paperback and Nook versions. She is rated 4.5 stars. Her reviewers have said:
" new and unusual style of writing. I had many "aha!" moments while reading this book. Can't wait for the next one!"
"An inspiring, touching and very personal anthology of poems and short stories that showcase the author's budding talent, "One Foot Out of the Box" takes the reader along on her first journey as a published author. I look forward to additional volumes in the future"

I really hate this cover. I am working on a second edition that will have a better cover and some additional content. Keep an eye out for it.
Don't Curse the Verse
Do you like poetry but find it difficult to understand? Then Vanessa has created this book just for you!
The first part of this book is a very basic poetry primer written with non-college people in mind. She says: "When I first started to write poetry, I would talk about it a lot. I found that I couldn't walk in a room without finding another person who claimed to love it. Yet the sales of poetry books are way down, so much that it is hard to find a traditional publisher that will take on a poetry book. There is even a running discussion as to whether poetry is dead." Vanessa says she created this book for those who want to understand poetry better, but don't want to get a college degree to do it.
The second half of this book is a collection of more of Vanessa's very emotional poetry, including poems like A Room Full of Angry Men, which is Vanessa's description of Congress, and I Can't Get Off te Floor, which talks about how it can feel to give up personal power to a controlled substance.

This book is about the urban legend popular in New Jersey, the Jersey Devil, but with a surprising new twist. It is in the earliest stages. I don't even have the cover yet. I hope you will join me as I work to bring this novel to you.:)
