I loved the book, and highly recommend it to anyone!

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 Dominique Grosevenor author of  FEVER
 
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'.  Wanda Starkes, C&B Books (Brooklyn, NY)
 
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 magnificence!
