Description

"WORDS FROM THE HEART" A COLLECTION OF POETRY AND PROSE, IS A TITLE THAT JUST FLOWED OUT OF ME AS I LOOKED OVER THE CANDIDATES THAT WERE ON THE SHORT LIST FOR THIS BOOK. THE MAJORITY OF THESE WORKS WERE WRITTEN DURING TWO SPECIFIC PERIODS IN MY RECENT LIFE, WHICH UNEXPECTEDLY BECAME WOVEN INTO ONE. TO LIGHTEN THE MOOD A BIT I HAVE ALSO INTERJECTED A COUPLE OF WHIMSICAL PIECES AS WELL AS TWO ABOUT MY FOUR LEGGED FURRY COMPANIONS. THEY ARE THE GLUE AND TAPE THAT OFTEN PUT ME BACK TOGETHER AGAIN, WHEN I BEGIN TO COME APART AT THE SEAMS.show more

About Richard Nurse

I have always allowed my imagination to have free reign. It has allowed me to write in a way that I enjoy. I simply sit in front of my computer, today, or with a paper and pen when I was younger, (And no not a quill pen) and let the words flow out to tell whatever story my imagination has created. I never know until I start writing what form it will take. It may come out as a rant, (and go nowhere) or as a blog, a poem, a short story, of a full-length book or books. Yes, I did say poetry, and I know a couple of English teachers where I went to high school that, either just rolled over in their grave, or fainted. English, as far as writing goes, with all of it rules regarding; verbs, adverbs, dangling participial, nouns, prepositions etc. made about as much sense to me at Latin I did. (All 3 times I took it.) And according to my editor, it still doesn't. (Bill Murray recently tweeted "I don't have bad handwriting. I have my own Font"). I love that line, and it ties in very nicely with my own philosophy. "Let your participial's dangle. Set your imagination free." I was fortunate to learn that writing was an effective form of therapy for me. It allowed me to make it through those last few years of my career. When I was ready to retire, but the rules said I was not old enough to do so. I have continued my therapy since I retired, and in the last ten years I have written and published over twenty novels, and or short stories under two different pen-names. After reading a line, that basically said, (if you wrote it and are proud of it, put your name on it.} I have made the decision to publish my new works under my own name. Richard Nurseshow more
