Lizardian by Melissa R.
A gruesome murder off Harriman Road sends the small
town of Crowley spiraling into suspicion and fear, but is it a
wild animal that hunts them down?

When I purchased Silent Dreams by Melissa R.
Mendelson, I did not know that it was a book of poems. I
guess I was expecting a psychodrama of some sort. To my
special surprise and great wonderment, I discovered a
collection of poems that exceed any  among self-published
authors that I have read to date. Filled with love and hate,
sadness & melancholy, hope and promise, power and
frailty, real time and time  passed  and future time, and
always with deep, highly intuitive introspection,
affords an all new venue where one can travel
back and forth, in and out, of one’s dreams with breath
catching longing to go on and on and on.

Here are but a few of my favorite lines from all the great
poems assembled within
Silent Dreams: From White
: “And you will be left following the white chalk, line
after line.” From
Brick Stones: “As we dare to face the
dreams that beg to be lived, not buried within.” From
Pieces of Me: “ The glass bursts apart as my world
crumbles . . . and now, I’m thirsty again.” From
Vanish: “I
smash the hourglass to get some of my time back.” And
Tracing Dreams: “If he were to go now, then this is
where he would want to be, under the sun and by the
garden.” Ah, now there is a poet! *****__John E. Cashwell

New for 2017
For 28 years, I have roamed
through this world in search of
myself. My life is a pendulum that
has swung from Long Island, where
I grew up, to upstate New York,
where I currently reside. The road
that I travel on is long but no
longer broken, and even if I don't
know where I am going, I still walk
on through whatever comes my
The inner scars that I carry come from those experiences
that led me to the woman that I am now. The dreams that
I carry come from those experiences kept within my heart
and now I have a voice and a scream to be
Praise for "Silent Dreams."

   A journey along this long road had
separated me from dreams sleeping
deep within, but then I met up with
them again. Now, they find voice
through my writing, my poetry, and as
I continue to wander this road in search
of myself, my words will pour down
through my hands and into the ink I
spill over these white pages I leave
   May my words touch you. Let me
inspire you to give voice to your own
dreams, for all we have are our dreams
to lead us down this road that we call
life. "Silent Dreams" may not be famous
. . . yet. If it will never be famous, I will
go on trumpeting it anyway, for it is me.
