About the author

Following Whispers

<p>Hello, I&#39;m Following Whispers, an English poet and author who has been writing poetry for over twenty years.<br /> <br /> Being raised solely by my Mum was a blessing in disguise, as in addition to living with someone who was worthy of being called my Best Friend, it also gave me a sensitive side, which helped me become the emotionally balanced young man I am today. I find that embracing my feminine side gives me a greater strength of character and clarity of vision.<br /> <br /> I&#39;m a self-professed Geek who can get deep sometimes, but I personally don&#39;t take myself too seriously, I just love to have fun, inspire myself and others, plus be inspired by others. In my early twenties, I realised that beauty can be born out of not only love, but also pain and other motivations. The more I used writing poetry to make sense of my busy mind, the more it helped me to find a silver lining in even the darkest emotions, experiences, observations and topics; find positivity even in the face of extreme negativity; find strength when I was being forced to feel weak; and find hope that my tomorrows would be brighter.<br /> <br /> I have recently taken the brave step of putting a collection of my poems out there for all to enjoy, by professionally publishing them. This debut of mine, entitled &quot;Proceed With Awesome&quot; (available from Amazon, Kobo, iBooks, Google Play and Barnes and Noble as an eBook, plus Worldwide as a paperback - see Website for details), is an honest, quirky, somewhat philosophical emotional roller-coaster, with poems that for the most part end on a more positive or resolute note. I have bared my soul in these poems and I&#39;m confident that you&#39;ll get just as much from reading and empathising with them, as I did from writing them... enjoy!</p> <p>Make sure you check out my Website, for all of tonnes of poetry freebies, info on all of my Social Media hangouts, and loads more.</p>
