3 Life-Affirming Chapters of Poetry and Prose Explore Links between Personal Trauma and the Global Coronavirus Pandemic



London, UK - July 15, 2020 –– In this brave new world, heartbreaks and personal tragedies affect us all deeply. Whether grieving a loved one, escaping abuse, or surviving a global crisis. We may move on ultimately to a new chapter, but we do not ignore or forget the past, and we certainly do not remain unscathed.

Can we still find hope amid disaster, trauma, or loss? When it feels like we have given up, we may stumble upon the words and deeds of others that inspire us to carry on.
Just recently, Anna Grace Du Noyer released three life-affirming chapters of poetry and prose in her book. Fear is a Liar. The book tells a story of crisis, loss, and survival, and the ultimate impact of love and hope.
"Poems have the power to translate unspeakable stories into something people can comprehend. For the poet, this means looking at the trauma right in the face!," commented Du Noyer. "Poems are vehicles for compassion. Sometimes that means compassion for yourself," she added.
Du Noyer is best known for her poetry collections of major life and World events. Her writing ranges from explicit and poignant compositions to abstract, free verse, providing a poem for every emotion experienced during prolonged periods of crisis.
Revealing a little of the author's complex life-story, the new book explores topics such as abuse, domestic violence, grief, loneliness, and rebellion.  But it's not all doom and gloom. A silver-lining of optimism runs throughout each chapter, with a layer of sarcasm and dry-wit added for good measure.
"I hope that the poems can benefit others - particularly women and girls. Perhaps a small step in learning to live with their ordeals, and to own them. Being angry is ok! Laughing is fine too - it's your experience – and it doesn't define you," Du Noyer said.
The timing of the book couldn't be more apt. As the world emerges from a global crisis, Du Noyer believes the Pandemic has shone a light on trauma - whether the collective suffering from this generation-defining crisis or personal traumas, amplified by the uniqueness of the situation.



"The coronavirus pandemic has acted as a global trigger-warning!" She says. "It has ignited long-suppressed feelings, for many, and it would not surprise me if it caused a mental health pandemic."
In the final chapter of Fear is a Liar, Du Noyer observes the impact of the virus on the fragile human spirit, expressed through poetry, making this book a compelling, must-read for 2020.
The final chapter is also available as a stand-alone book, Poems of the Pandemic.
Both books will be released to Audible and iTunes in August 2020, for the beautiful and full impact of the spoken word.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Contemporary poet, Anna Grace Du Noyer was born in 1986 in North Wales.

Du Noyer's experiences in early life and young adulthood influence themes within her collections.

Growing up in the British countryside, as the daughter of a geologist, metaphors of mountainous landscapes and stark scenes in nature feature heavily in her poetry.

Du Noyer's poetry is an antidote to the excesses of civilisation, exploring and reflecting on often unnoticed but profound details in the natural world.

Best known for her poetry journals of major life and world events, her writing ranges from stark and moving elegies to abstract, descorts and free verse. Occasional, humorous, epigrams provide a poem for every feeling experienced during prolonged periods of crisis such as the death of a parent or a global pandemic - two major themes in her recent work.

Du Noyer's largest collection of poetry was written during her mother's battle with terminal brain cancer. And in her book Poems of the Pandemic, she explores themes surrounding the 2020 global coronavirus outbreak.




Her observations on the flaws and nuances of the human condition help create a rounded story of life through her lense.

Tell your readers a little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.

Well, my name is Latanya "Epiphany" Richardson. Some call me Epiphany Tanya. I am a wife, mother of one, former Trauma Therapist, and of course, author. My life could be summed up with the title "Miracle Story." I was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pa. I grew up in a place called North Philly. North Philly is probably one of the roughest, poorest, ghettos. Growing up, I was told I would never amount to anything. At first, those words led me down a pretty dark path for the first half of my life. Then when I was 21 while sitting in my room, I had this spiritual awakening of sorts. It's where my name Epiphany came from. I literally had this huge epiphany and paradigm shift. Jesus Christ completely changed my life. Christ inspired really inspired me to go on and write five books (with more set to come). My story and books have made a huge impact until I have been featured on radio and in several magazines. I was also nominated and won awards for my ability to inspire others. Despite some of the atrocities I've witnessed and experienced, I still know that with God, all things are possible. I have a new book, "The Road To Breakthrough," that is meant to inspire change. My book, Gods Diamonds was written to inspire others that they, too, are God's diamonds meant to shine for the King. Helping and inspiring others is my passion. I am also a podcaster.  I now reside in the Tampa Florida area. Also I have a B.A. in Psychology from Temple University and a Masters in School & Mental Health Counseling from the University of Pa. I support commissions to end issues such as Domestic Violence, child abuse, sexual assault, sex trafficking and homelessness. I have several groups on social media that support these initiatives.

My podcast can be found at http://anchor.fm/epiphany-tanya.

I am also a Goodreads Author at Goodreads.com/author/show/4884239

I also run a business www.epiphanyconsultingworks.com which helps other authors write, publish, market, and promote their books. I love writing and preaching.



Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?

Definitely my faith in Jesus Christ, but outside of my faith, I would say severe pain and trauma. There is a scripture in the bible that talks about God giving His children beauty for ashes. I love this idea that God will take our hurts, pain, past sins, losses, and all these bad things to turn around to use them for good. Not just any good but specifically our own good. Here I was going through unbelievable pain and trauma in my life, but God blessed me with a completely new and different life when I came to Him.

Who is your target audience, and why?

I truly believe my books have the absolute ability to reach far beyond the walls of the church. My stories in all of my books are relatable. I like to say that pain is the great equalizer. My goal is to reach any who are lost and hurting. My books will inspire, restore and bring them hope.

 What do you consider your greatest success in life?

Giving my life to Christ and graduating from an Ivy League school and Masters Program after dropping out in the 10th grade. It's why I know that with God, all things are possible. The one who they said would never amount to anything has accomplished more than dreamed.

What one unique thing sets you apart from other writers in your genre?

My honesty and writing from the heart. I try to meet and reach my reader, where he or she is. I also have the ability to transport people through my books. You will feel like you are in the room when certain things are happening. You also will have a unique spiritual experience when you read any of my books. It will touch and impact your life. You will feel the power and presence of God in my books.

Two Promises




Today's book of the day gives hope and I highly recommend it. With everything happening around the world, we all need an example of how humanity can come together and create a brighter future if ...  Find out the rest of the if... in "Two Promises," by John B. Thompson Jr. You won't be sorry that you did. I highly recommend this book.


Two Promises Paperback – June 8, 2020

by John B. Thompson Jr.  (Author)




Two Promises is a story about a group of children who embark on a long-anticipated journey during which they come face-to-face with some extreme, and often dark, examples of human behavior. Determined to see the world returned to the innocence and glory of its creation, they form an unlikely alliance with a businessman and a street musician that leads to an epic world-wide event.

It is not the intent of the author that this book is read at face value, as a story about a group of children in a strange parade. Instead, you are invited to walk along with the characters as they describe scenes and images that hold hidden insights intended to provoke thoughts about your own place in the Master's plan and your preparedness for the end times. Look for the symbolism and hidden meanings. What does each character or place represent? How does the broader message relate to current real-world issues and events? Each element of this story contains several levels of meaning, all with a focus on the spiritual sense. The meaning you draw will be based on your own personal experiences, and may change over time as you progress on your spiritual journey. How will you interpret the different scenes? Which applies to your spiritual journey? Do some changes need to be made?

Come, join the 'parade'…

About the Author

John is a retired corporate safety manager, having served in the field of environmental, safety, and health for almost 50 years. His experience started as a member of a volunteer rescue squad and continued as he progressed from safety engineer to senior manager during his successive tenures at three Fortune 500 companies.

This book is based on a series of dreams he experienced while quarantined during the 2020 pandemic. John, who rarely remembers a dream, was struck by the depth and detail of these dreams, and he felt compelled to write a summary of them to see if he could make sense of their meaning. Upon awakening each morning, he would write, with each chapter being completed in just a couple of hours. Over the next two weeks, the dreams continued, ending on Palm Sunday. Two Promises, as published, is almost exactly as it was when the last chapter was completed that morning.

John is not an ordained minister, not a religious leader, and does not consider himself to be the true author of this book. The message in his dreams helped John through a struggle he was experiencing with his spiritual journey, and he believes that message as captured in Two Promises was meant to be shared - which is why he pursued it to publication. John has served in leadership positions with his church - on their parish council, finance committee, building committee, prison ministry, youth retreats, and as a high school Christian Education teacher. In 1982 he served on a Cursillo team with Bishop Walter F. Sullivan at the Spring Street Penitentiary in Richmond, Virginia. In 1984 Bishop Sullivan again called upon him, this time to serve on the Richmond Diocesan Pastoral Council. John served for eight years, two of which he chaired a team to advise the Bishop on the need for, and role of Deacons in the Diocese, and two of which he served as chair of the Council. In 1999 Bishop Sullivan appointed John to the board of Shalom House, a retreat house in Ashland, Virginia, in need of renovation and expansion.

John resides in Virginia with his wife Kathy, whom he married in 1974. Both were active with the Richmond Cursillo movement in the '80s, and as Stephen's Ministers in the '90s and early 2000s. They have two grown children, Christina and Gregory.
