Dormant talent often emerges when one least expects it to. When author Trisha Allan suffered relationship and work problems, which led to breakdown a few years back, it also unleashed her creative side. Poems and Short Stories of Life was born from that experience.
Poems and Short Stories of Life is a memorable collection wherein the author lets readers experience “A Day in the life of a Housewife” and “A Summer Day at the Annual Fete.” Switching to verse, she tells “A Nature’s Tale,” of “Working People,” and “A Village Pub.” Utilizing rhythm and rhyme, she explores many other themes such as love, family, furry friends, nature and so much more. Though her poetic pieces may seem brief, she is able to express more with less. Readers will discover a wealth of emotions in this anthology and find works that linger in their minds and strike a chord in their hearts.

About the Author
Trisha Allan’s journey of life has taken her along different paths and she has achieved a lot. However, a few years ago, after the breakup of her relationship and workload, she suffered a breakdown. While recovering, she met some spiritual people who helped her to find her way back. It was at this time something special happened. The breakdown had somehow triggered the creative side of her brain and as a result she was able to write poetry and stories. Her second book, which is a novel, will be out later this year. One of her spiritual friends has her thoughts on why this has happened, but she herself does not know the answer. She still at times does not believe that she wrote them as most of the inspiration for her poems and stories come while she is sleeping.
