HOBART, Australia – TaLisa opens “Paper Doors” (published by Xlibris AU) to reveal life and love, exploring the feelings behind the feelings, thoughts behind the thoughts and the pain and pleasure of love, lust and passion. This is her debut book, delivering a tender emotional punch of poetry, thought-provokers and short stories.

With “Paper Doors” TaLisa reaches into the depths and dark corners of the heart and mind to fill pages with startling amounts of the unsaid in love and loss. She pushes the boundaries of these themes and splatters a few hearts across the page. She boldly explores emotions difficult to acknowledge internally, let alone verbalise, taking her readers through a rollercoaster of emotions, from the knowing smirk that creeps upon lips though to the hot flow of tears down pink cheeks. It has the power to lower readers’ defenses and urge vulnerability as TaLisa inspires them not to go a moment longer without telling someone the whispers of their hearts.

“Penning this book came by picking at the scars of my past until they became wounds I could feel again and draw inspiration from.” TaLisa says. “I want people to find a path to their own personal truth and strength, to understand we all have our down days, but we are each strong enough to get up, dust ourselves of and strive for a life of love for all, especially in love for ourselves.”

TaLisa’s introspections shine light into her dark corners, places that may have been otherwise unexplored. By conveying this process to her readers, she enables them to learn, grow and allow themselves to be sad when they need to be sad, but then become empowered to stand up, take the lesson and develop their own personal strength and beauty. “Paper Doors” shares feelings left unspoken which are powerful in their vulnerability.
