NEW YORK (PRWEB) March 18, 2016
Behind the luminous glitter of the spotlight is a woman whose sentiments are fiercely human. In her maiden venture into the world of literature, model and young poet Gabrielle Kniery reveals her sides and angles that her flashy and camera-riddled world does not capture.
"UNRAVELING" (published by Xlibris) is an anthology of poems written by the author for many years. It chronicles her inner journey of life, love, heartache and personal struggles as she strives to find herself and remain true to her identity and calling. The author offers her book as a message to people and the society to "channel their pain and hardships and to find light within the cracks by finding the power within themselves to keep going."
Growing up, writing became her form of escape, finding solace in the written word and hope in the cathartic vessel of poetry. In this cornucopia of metaphors and imageries, she bares herself raw – both as a woman and as a human. She encourages her readers to recognize the universality of essence in the uniqueness of individual experience.
An excerpt from "UNRAVELING:"
Unraveling can be beautiful
It isn't always a tragedy
A young woman finding herself.
Finding her gravity.

About the Author
Gabrielle Kniery was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri. Her eyes were set on the big city. In 2008, she got her first taste of New York, where she began modeling. By 2010, she was casted for the CW TV series America’s Next Top Model, allowing her to build a platform for herself. Residing in New York City, among all things Kniery went through many obstacles to follow her dreams, nothing to come easy. Through many of her experiences, she would find herself consumed writing in her journal. Writing became an escape from her reality. As her writing began to inspire her, and others around, she then found her niche, her strength to move through the current.
