by Karen Maria LaFleur In this thoughtful volume, Karen Maria LaFleur gives us a collection of poems dating from the early 1990s to the present. The result of many hours of soul searching, Love, War and Peace is poetic collage that will motivate and inspire you even as you appreciate its lyrical rhythms. ABOUT THE AUTHOR Born on the Caribbean island of Trinidad, Karen Maria LaFleur was educated there and on its sister island, Tobago, where she has lived with her parents as well as grandmothers, aunts, and uncles. A culinary school graduate, she loves to cook and bake when she is not writing. Because she has suffered with epilepsy all of her life, Karen has always felt she was different, but it is this insecurity that inspired her to transfuse words from her heart and mind to create poetry. It is not Gods wrath, but an opportunity to identify with and embrace others who suffer from the same illness. (2005, paperback, 60 pages) Availability: Usually ships in 2-3 business days.
