Trying new foods.

I wrote Don't Eat Your Boogers while I was working in daycare and observed both a lot of booger eating and picky eaters. So I thought I would combine the two issues into a story. In this scene, Goober is trying spinach for the first time. After all, it is one of the gross, dark, leafy green vegetables to cure boogeritis.

Looks Like A Case Of Boogeritis To Me.

The Safety Of Objects

On the surface, material objects are just that. Inanimate things that can be seen, touched, smelled, heard, tasted and sometimes all five. However, us humans have a way of associating meaning to even the most ordinary-seeming of items, from allergy-inducing grass blades to delectable candy and everything in between. Some objects bring us all-encompassing comfort, while others bring us undeniable distress. The saying one person’s trash is another person’s treasure certainly rings true here. Whether you are a chocoholic or a coffee aficionado, this unique collection of poetry belongs on your bookshelf.

The One You Can Never Compete Against

I wrote this poem about when I saw my crush walk in with his girlfriend one night at work. She was perfect, not a hair out of place or a makeup smudge. I knew right then, among other reasons, that I could never compete with her. Not that I wanted to break them up but I knew even if I had a chance that he would choose her every time.

I wrote this poem about an unrequited love. We've all had one of these, haven't we? The worst part is when you have to be around it all the time. When no matter how you look at it, the pain is unbearable. But to look them in the face would be the ultimate demise of your heart and soul.

Consequences For Our Actions

I wrote this book to show children there are consequences for our actions and decided to use punishments from back in the old days to drive home the point. In this scene, Brock is transported back in time to experience and old time spanking using a switch. I used to hear my grandparents talk about this when they were alive. However, when Brock is transported back to his house it's almost like it was a dream to him, still, the experience gets his attention.

My First Children's Book

I wrote this book while I was working in daycare. It was the height of cold and flu season and I heard my co-teacher say, "Ew! Don't Eat Your Boogers!" and I thought, "You'll turn green." I could feel a story brewing and by the end of the week I had a rough draft. Then I sat on it for a bit. I took a writing course and at the end we had to submit either a novella, a chapter of a book, or a children's story. I sent in my story and got really good feedback and that I should publish it. I tried a few places but no luck. So, I read it to our school age room (4's and 5's) and they liked it. Then I heard someone say, "I want that book." So, I published it. If it weren't for the kids liking the story, I may never had had the courage to publish it.

Love Unrequited

Another poem about love unrequited. I can still remember who this poem was about and all the things they were going through at the time. I thought I could be the one to fix it all, if only I would be noticed. Looking back, it all worked out. There were too many differences and he was deeply in love with someone else anyway. We would have crashed and burned out. Still, as a teenager when I wrote this, my tortured feelings meant everything.

A Snippet of Heartache

This poem was written about waiting for an unrequited love to return. This entire book of poems is about heartache, obsession, unrequited love, tears, anger, frustration, sadness, and finally letting go.

Shadow Of Soul

Literature & Fiction

“Shadow of Soul” takes the reader on an emotive pilgrimage of the human experience that isn’t often discussed. Through the art of dark poetic storytelling, Carrie Lowrance awakens one’s psyche to a wide spectrum of suppressed emotion, from rage to anguish and everything in between. By book’s end, the reader will get to know the entirety of their soul and wholeheartedly embrace it, darkness and all. Most importantly, this collection of poignant poems teaches us that one’s shadow isn’t an aspect of themselves that they should fear. Beauty and pain reside in every facet of this journey called life.

Crush

I remember writing this about someone I had a serious crush on. Out of all the "mistakes" I've made in bad relationships and experiences in unrequited love, I hold this person dear. Why? Because even after he found out about my feelings, he still treated me with kindness and respect. Looking back, in the end, we would have been all wrong for each other. Now we are both happily married to other people so it all worked out.

The Dark Early Years

Many of these poems were written in my teens through my mid-adult life. I can still remember staying up late after everyone else went to sleep, writing in my notebooks. Some of these poems were written when I was very young (early to late teens) when I knew nothing about life or love. Some were written in my late teens to mid-twenties when I was dealing with typical young adult stuff-love, breakups, life, etc. All I had to do was open my notebook and it was as if I cut myself to bleed. My thoughts and emotions would just spill out. I'm so glad I published them years later and I hope others will fins comfort and healing in them.

The Safety of Objects

Literature & Fiction

On the surface, material objects are just that. Inanimate things that can be seen, touched, smelled, heard, tasted and sometimes all five. However, us humans have a way of associating meaning to even the most ordinary seeming of items, from allergy-inducing grass blades to delectable candy and everything in between. Some objects bring us all-encompassing comfort, while others bring us undeniable distress. The saying one person’s trash is another person’s treasure certainly rings true here. Whether you are a chocoholic or a coffee aficionado, this unique collection of poetry belongs on your bookshelf.

A Poem About Coffee

I love coffee. Iced or hot. Flavored or not. However, it must have creamer in it. This poem is an ode to all the ways we wake up with our favorite cup of joe every morning.

Our Feline Friends

I love cats and have owned several throughout the years. When I was writing this poem, I was thinking of how to creatively describe a cat.

The Lighter Side Of Poetry

After writing Lithium Dreams and Melancholy Sunrise, my first book of dark poetry, I wanted to focus on the lighter side of my writing. I had ten notebooks full of poetry over the years that was collecting dust on the shelf so I had a lot to work with. I went through and chose the lighter ones and decided to compile them into a book. Ironically, many of the poems are about things (snowflakes, chocolate, grass, etc) so I decided to call the book The Safety Of Objects.
