Walking Before You Run

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
This is a poetry compilation of 75 poems written over a period of time from childhood to young adult. These poems are compiled in no particular order but the progression of maturity in the content and style of each poem clearly identifies relative age and mentality when written. Thru the eyes of a child and then thru the eyes as that child ages.

About Angelique LaFontaine

My name is Angelique LaFontaine. I was born in Menomonee Falls, Wisconsin and live in the country about an hour outside of Dallas, TX. I am employed as a Mechanical Engineer but spend much of my time painting and writing I have been building my work collection for the last 15 years and it includes paintings, sketches, poetry compilations, novels, digital short stories and much more.

I do not limit my writing to one specific genre but I tend to lean more toward fiction fantasy. I love the idea of not having boundaries when writing. If you can think it, in my story, it could happen. In 2008, I released my first poetry compilation. This collection was entitled Walking Before You Run. It is a collection of 75 poems that I've written over the years. In 2010 I released Sandstone and Mirrors: The Crossover. I have many more books and short stories that I am preparing to release.

Besides writing, I love to paint and sketch. I enjoy working with acrylic mainly but from time to time, work with other mediums. Currently my work is being displayed in the Little Elm Library in Little Elm TX. It has been rotated throughout different locations in the Dallas area. Please see my website at www.AngeliqueArtWork.com for any updates.

Review by: Bruce Benson on Aug. 1, 2012 :
My final review on the work that this author has released is a little bit different. Normally, I am not a poetry fan. However, after I read the poetry book, I viewed the author's art work on her website. There is a lot of overlap between the 2 in terms of emotion vs logical. The author's lyrics are strong and crafty. There is a mature development in the the poems and the art, which I suspect the art came long after the poetry as the art appears to emmulate the mature portion of the poetry. All in all though, insightful, raw, emotional. That is how I would describe the book.
