Incredible Experience! That's exactly what Latorial Faison has given in
Secrets Of My Soul, not mere words, but an incredible experience. As a
fellow writer, I extend my deepest gratitude and admiration to Faison for
unlocking the door to her soul and permitting entrance to those who dare
to steal a peek. Her work, in retrospect, is no less than heavenly! Steven

combined in your poems. I always sense honesty!

|Before I was an author I was
a poet, and Secrets of My Soul is why. I love words and the playful
way that poets make words do what they say. Latorial Faison is indeed a
poet. She had me from title poem, and when I stumbled upon "Mirrored Soul,"
I knew I had found someone whose work I'd eat up...hungrily. I've also
become an avid fan of haiku and #9 is my favorite with her wordplay with
sun/Son. If you only buy the book for "You Never Did Own Me," trust that
by the time you get to "I Dare You," you will be glad you did. Linda

|The Soul Has Many Secrets!
Ms. Latorial Faison's, Secrets of My Soul is uplifting and
a delightful ray of work. Intelligently written, Latorial explores various
issues and plights regarding self, family, and the world describing them
in words filled with spirituality, empowerment, love and joy.
I especially enjoyed the positive energy that I personally felt as I read
each one of her poems. I look forward to reading more poetry by Ms. Faison's
in the near future. Her poetry is a wonderful 'Fruit of Thoughts'.

|I finally read Latorial's book
and all I could think was "these poems were written for ME!" Ms. Faison's
words struck so many chords in me. Her poems spoke to my soul and helped
me reveal secrets that had been locked in me since childhood. She is a
talented writer and I can't wait for her next book! Absolute poetic
