I don’t actually remember how I first met Renee Robinson. I think it all started when some unmitigated ‘Ho wrote a cruel review about her writing, and I jumped to her defense. That sounds about like me. Anyone who could write cruelly about someone who does what Renee does with her life deserves a smack-down. Of course, I have never met her in person, but I have been corresponding with her for a while. Renee is a Terminal Cancer victim, who just received the dreaded “There is nothing else we can do” message, a message I never received myself, but feared nevertheless.
You see, Renee is the author of Captain Chemo: Out Cancer, Out! (Captain Chemo and Team Book 1). It is a poem, a poem designed to help children who are going through chemo to build courage and remain positive through the horrors of chemo. And believe me – chemo is horrendous. The pain, the vomiting, the weakness – it is all more than even adults can sometimes handle. Now, think about a small child going through the same thing – the horror of it all beyond their understanding. Renee’s book helps. Maybe not in any “this is going to make it all go away” sort of way – but it provides hope for the little ones.
Tracy Townsend with Healthsource 10 interviewed Renee on July 23. You can watch the video here:
Renee and her family have donated several of her books to Nationwide Children’s, The James and the Fairfield Medical Center.
This book is a perfect donation for the cancer centers in your area. Why not be a peach and purchase several? The children will thank you – and your heart will too.
How courageous is it, for someone like Renee who is Terminal, to care so much about children suffering from cancer and try to help them? Renee is someone I am proud to call my friend. Leiah Cooper. http://soireadthisbooktoday.com/

Unwritten Life, Amy Shannon
renee.robinson2 Amy Shannon- Unwritten Life Alex has been trying to forget her past. The fact is, she runs from her past. Somehow, like a supernatural entity, her past follows and haunts her. It even finds her! How can this happen? She relocated and completely changed her life. Her habits, skills, employment even her entire identity has been changed! It begins with her best friend appearing out of nowhere. He is a constant reminder of what she has tried to erase from her memories. -Who she was and what she did. This story builds up and then makes your heart drop when Alex ends up with a stalker. As the reader, you want so much for Alex to overcome her past and find true happiness. Yet she finds herself in love, in danger and in turmoil. I believe Amy Shannon can write with such chilling believability because of her own past experiences. I do not know any more than is written in her biography, this is strictly my opinion. I know from experience, an author’s best writings often come from a knowledge of what they write. I am anxious to read Amy’s entire library. She is a new author who should not be overlooked. Her words scream Attention!
This review is such a nice one,I wanted to share. Below are links to the reviewer’s Website, blog and Facebook. She has written several books and has a lovely blog.

Captain Chemo is a cheerful poem to bring hope to kids who are battling cancer. With a simple chant “Out, cancer, out!” the author gives kids a tool to build up their confidence and strength. She encourages children to fight and to keep a positive attitude when going through chemotherapy. The coloring pages at the end of the book, with some cute and funny characters, are a great bonus.
Author Renee Robinson is a cancer warrior herself. What I find remarkable is that even though Ms. Robinson herself–and her family– are going through a tough time, she still has such a drive and passion for creating and helping others.
Let’s hope that this book gets to the hands of many young children who need a smile and who need someone to tell them, I understand you, keep fighting, you are going to be okay. That is the message and importance of this children’s book.

She found what she sought more than a century ago.
Life is what she got. Serving her time in a handmade prison.
All four walls made with precision.
Beneath a veil of gray, one can see every detail.
Every image finely placed, fastened by the illusion of a nail.
Every nail, a reminder of the passing of time.
Every nail, a curse. Immortality is a crime.
Where Heaven And Earth Unite
I wonder if death is better than life?
To give up sickness and pain
Sorrow and grief
Tears no longer falling like rain
I think of loved ones
Passed on before
Did they make it’?
Make it through the heavenly door
I will Watch them come in
To be on the other side
One by one
Tears would not hide
From the joy kept within
I will find a soft place
Where I may rest
In the misty shadows
Hidden from the rest
There I will lay down to meditate.
Join the higher powers to give thanks.
I will visit lands in the past and kiss the heavenly ground.
Where sacred feet once walked upon.
I would be a servant to show my love.
Brush the Lord’s hair.
Kiss the wings of the dove for there is not enough I could ever do to show my love bestowed on you.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Johann’s Awakening: by Arthur Telling” ASIN: B004E3Y014 A short story.This book is cleverly written in a beautiful thought provoking classical style. Instead of “preaching” or giving a religious lecture, essay or other long boring documents, Arther Telling writes a story about a seagull who seeks to be the greatest of all seagulls. During his quests, he learns far more about himself, his religion and his God than expected. This leaves him confused and full of questions. He receives valuable spiritual knowledge through meditation, traveling the realms, and observing the ways of his flock including those who despise him.
