Benjamin Qaadir Shambala is a Philadelphia native, realtor, motivation speaker, and poet who was mentored by Maya Angelou, who inspired him to write in the midst of a tumultuous period in his life. He has completed his new book “A Lonely Pen”: an evocative and deeply personal compilation of emotion and insight.

The author writes, “‘A Lonely Pen refers to the relationship between me and the instrumentation I use to relay my thoughts and feelings to the world.

It also uses personification, metaphor, and hyperbole to illustrate the passion involved with writing itself. The title describes this all perfectly and, in my humble opinion, is my most important piece. We will see if history indeed bears me out.

A writer, any writer of any kind, has to create an audience and tell them a story. The success of the writing has somewhat less to do with the skill of the writer and his techniques than it will have to do with the reception and interpretations of his audience. Why does a writer write? He writes because he must write. He writes as easily as he speaks and as necessary as he breathes. Once written, they all have a life and destiny of their own beyond the writer’s control yet gaining for him his immortality.”

Published by Page Publishing, Benjamin Qaadir Shambala’s engrossing work is an excellent choice for avid readers of modern poetry.

Readers who wish to experience this engaging work can purchase “A Lonely Pen” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
