Silver Spring, MD, United States, 2006/10/01 - E. Tara Scurry’s first book Storm of Roses (February, 2006) is a collection of raw poetry and short stories that provoke reflection on subjects and emotions most people rather keep internally.
Fall – There’s nothing better than sipping a cup of cider by the fire, sitting in a park in the beauty of Autumn, or curling up on the couch getting lost with a good read. Some of the most compelling reads today are poetry and short stories because they are quick, engaging, and enable the reader to relate on many levels. E. Tara Scurry’s first book Storm of Roses (February, 2006) does just that. Best described as similar to a box of chocolates – some crunchy, some chewy, some hard to chew, but all of them delicious – Storm of Roses is a collection of raw poetry and short stories that provoke reflection on subjects and emotions most people rather keep internally.
Storm of Roses is about pleasure, life, death, spirituality, fantasies, and daydreams. Scurry believes there’s a rich and irresistible freedom and permanency that comes from the written word and hopes her prose reaches deep inside the reader’s soul, encouraging them to second-guess reality, challenge their current philosophies, relate and reflect the words to their own lives, and simply be entertained.
Scurry is available to discuss:
• Why interest in poetry and short stories is making a comeback
• Why subjects included in Storm of Roses ‘hit home’
• How to take the steps in getting your prose self-published.
