STAPLEFORD, England (PRWEB) August 06, 2013
Stapleford, England- Mike Carter has written seven books for both adults and children. His genres include horror, thriller and science fiction, but Carter is proving to be more than just a novelist. His newest book, "My Poet Tree" (published by AuthorHouse), gives readers snapshots of Carter’s life, dreams and nightmares.
"I have not written in this medium before and welcomed a new challenge," he says.
"My Poet Tree" turns Carter’s life experiences into powerful verse, touching on various topics ranging from the environment and the futility and cost of war to love and loneliness. Carter describes writing about these topics as an opportunity to "open those boxes stored away in the mind and explore the contents."
Though Carter has much experience in writing novels, poetry is a new frontier for him. Of his new passion, he writes, "I don’t think you learn poetry. For me, it has its origins in the everyday. It’s a means of communicating without the shackles of shyness or the fear of confrontation. It is what it is, a manifestation of our own individuality in the form of the written word."
