In celebration of books, Empish Thomas, a resident of Atlanta, Georgia, is featured in the current issue of The Book Lover’s Haven (http://www.chistell.com). Empish is a journalist who values story, whether told in the oral or written traditions, with a passion that allows her to spot a literary genius at a glance. Give her a few pages and she will tell you how deep into the human root a story will take you. She is among the editors, journalists, book club presidents and reviewers who enrich the literary and educational landscapes. Her love of literature extends beyond the physical challenge she faced years ago, a challenge that cost her physical sight, a challenge that would have stopped more than a few book lovers.
As The Book Lover’s Haven (http://www.chistell.com) notes in its Spring issue, “Empish Thomas is more than a talented journalist; she is an avid book reader and disability advocate who combines all three passions by writing interesting and compelling stories on disability-related issues and literary topics.” As founder of The Book Lover’s Haven (http://www.chistell.com), Turney states, “We are honored to share Empish with our global subscribers. Book publishing being an industry where rejection of one’s submitted work is common, Empish brings a strong voice for perseverance. Having lost her sight years ago, she retained her love of literature and has gone on to enjoy a successful writing career. Her story is one that inspires and sets a clear example exemplifying human character and passion for one’s talent in the face of challenge – a passion that pushes a writer over the top.”
When asked what attracts book lovers to The Book Lover’s Haven (a free monthly literary periodical started five years ago), Turney notes, “The Book Lover’s Haven (http://www.chistell.com), provides global readers and writers serious about the craft a place to gain firsthand advice from new, seasoned and established novelists, journalists, screenplay writers and poets. Topics we cover include editing, visibility, agent-author relationships and publication.” Writers featured in The Book Lover’s Haven include bestselling authors Zane, Omar Tyree, Tracy Thompson, Michael McCann, Dan Poytner, Maxine Thompson and Grammy-award nominee, Awiatka.
