National Poetry Day – did you miss it?

28 September is designated National Poetry Day – at least in the UK. At TSL, we don’t see one day as a special day – all days are special, so below are the our authors who also write poetry. TSL doesn’t specalise in poetry but we do have some poetry either as part of a collection or to support a charity.

Playwright and author Barbara Towell has a book of poetry Patchworks.
Kat Francois and Robbie Cheadle also publish poetry, albeit not through TSL.

Megan Carter appreciation

Megan Carter

Megan is another of TSL’s quiet authors. Social media and other such things are not her strength.
She prefers being with people and is quite community focused evidenced by the author sales of her poetry collection Amazing Grace.
If you are looking for a reflective read of a Christian or spiritual nature, why not give Megan’s book a read?


Spiritual places

The most obvious spiritual places are generally regarded as religious places. How many books feature these special places? I’ve identified a few:

A church (of England) church in The Good Vicar by John Samson
St Paul’s, a Polish church in Ealing and various others in A Second Chance by Anna Ryland
There is a Presbyterian Church in Naomi Young-Rodas’ If it Falls

And a whole book about a church which became a VAD hospital during World War 1 – St John’s United Reformed Church by Northwood Community Arts (on request).

Linda Kane has a few churches and other spiritual places in her Luci de Foix series: Black Madonna: The Pope’s Obsession and Death is an Illusion.
Jo Wilkinson’s When Falls the Night and Leslie Tate in Love’s Register have spiritual places rather than a building, as does Kathleen Bates in Joyful Witness.
Megan Carter’s collection of poetry Amazing Grace is inspired by spiritual places while Beatrice Holloway’s Elusive Destiny deals with meeting the requirements to get into heaven in novel format.

About Megan Carter

Megan Carter has been a Christian for many years and came to faith following a family tragedy. Like so many before her, she in desperation cried out to a God in whom she did not believe. Such is the grace of God that over a period of time He revealed Himself to her and no one was more surprised than she was.
She was given a King James Bible by a Christian neighbour and told to read it – which she was desperate enough to do.
From those early beginnings sprang an understanding and amazement at seeing the heart of God that longs for all to be saved and come to a knowledge of His love.
Having always been fond of literature, Megan then began to write short poems, with the hope that they would in some way impart the wonder and majesty of the God she had found, who reveals Himself through His Word.
