From the Depth of My Soul
Whether I'm scribbling down poems & novels under my own name Tammy Rebere, or children's stories under my pen name Elizabeth Hope, writing has taken me inward, to the depth of my very soul and turned me inside out, giving me greater joy than I could have ever imagined.
I'm currently working on several projects, including a memoir, a couple of thrillers, and another children's book. Here are a few of the works I've had the privelege to publish, and I'm super excited to announce my soon to be released poetry book, The Echo of You.
The Echo of You
Through a series of poems, The Echo of You, takes you on a beautifully tragic and intimate journey of a couple destined to be together. Their love echoes across time and space over thousands of years, but in this life, they must overcome great adversity in order to be together.
Conflicted by personal circumstances and overwhelmed by past trauma, they seek solace in nature and delve inward to develop their internal power and strength. Once they truly heal, they are able to finally fulfil their destiny, not only with one another, but in themselves.
From the moment these lovers discover each other in their dreams to making their connection a reality, you will be swept away with feelings of passion, loss, healing, and eternal love.
Gordo & Chico: An Unexpected Friendship
When Gordo, a gopher—or so he thinks—embarks on an epic journey to the National Park to flee the destruction of his home, he is joined by his newfound friend Chico, a feisty caterpillar, who is en route to Mexico to find his long-lost family.
Along the way, they encounter odd creatures, make new friends, and escape from all sorts of dangers. And in the end, they make the greatest discovery of all, that their friendship is beyond appearances and comes straight from their hearts.
Misfits and Unusual Heroes
At some point in every superhero's origin story, there's a moment of trauma, a significant crisis: a spider bite, a car crash, a devastating accident, the loss of a parent, uncle, wife, or loved one.
The genesis of every superhero emerges out of the depths of these horrific, tragic, life-changing experiences.
You can't have drama without trauma.
That's why we read comic books. Not just to be entertained, but to find meaning for the suffering we experience in our own lives. We want to see how ordinary people can overcome impossible odds. How others rise from the ashes after their lives imploded, after they lost someone, something, or even everything.
Because deep down, each one of us wants to make sense of our scars. We want there to be purpose in our pain. We want to observe the transformation of trauma into superpowers.
This collection of stories, poems, and artwork is taken from the experiences and imaginations of nearly forty contributors. It is our hope that this book will find it's way into the hands of every creative misfit and unusual hero who needs to hear that:
You are not alone.
Your trauma can be transformed.
You are a superhero.
