Inspired by a teacher's not so subtle push, Ree Vera began writing at the age of twelve and hasn't stopped since. Her love and skill for the romance genre shines through in her dialogue, memorable characters and their stories. Combined with the humor she injects throughout, Ree will have you laughing, crying, and falling in love from the very first page. Though she'll always be a Texas cowgirl at heart and by birth, Ree now resides in the Chicago area, often going by the name Minerva.

I think that people don't always see what's really there in poetry and sometimes people see more than what is there. In so many ways I can relate to a lot of this poetry, a culture not unlike my own. Bringing warmth and laughter and sometimes righteous anger. Lol, well, maybe not anger. *winks* But emotion does fill me. That's what I like about Ree Vera's poetry, it says more than the words written. It speaks volumes about the heart. I would highly recommend this book if you want to lose yourself in sensory bliss. --K. River Jordan

Ree Vera has a knack for words that never ceases to amaze me. These poems are deep, emotional, and a little bit dark and macabre, though not enough to put the reader off. In fact, it draws them in to read more. One blip on the radar that seemed to stand out was the poem for her mother. The rest seem to be romantic (sometimes happy, sometimes depressed) pieces that anyone can relate to. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!
