Name Caroline Morphew
Where are you from
A little about your self `ie your education Family life etc I was born in Indiana, but grew up in a small town by the name of Camden, Arkansas. We had a big family. I have 4 brothers and sisters and 3 step-sisters. I was very serious about my school work, and always strived to be a straight A student. In other words, books and words have always played an important role in my life.
Fiona: Tell us your latest news?
Lately I been focusing more on editing and getting some of my writing published in my own name. I have spent the last four years writing as a freelance ghostwriter, so self-publishing is a new endeavor for me. Mine and Brooke Dylan’s new book, “No Fly Zone Muse Poetry” is my latest news!
Fiona: When and why did you begin writing?
I have been writing since I was an adolesent. The desire to write poetry and short stories I feel I was born with, and the love of words has been with me for as long as I can remember.
Fiona: When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I first considered myself a writer probably in high school. My English Literature teachers encouraged me by helping me hone my talent, and they truly were an inspiration for me. I then went on to study creative writing and Literature in college.
Fiona: What inspired you to write your first book?
I have been inspired by so many things, but I would have to say most of my inspiration to write books and poetry has come from fellow writers. I truly believe as writers, we can be such a blessing and encouragement for one another. Of course, the men I have loved deeply have served as amazing muses and inspired my heart and soul in so many lovely ways.
Fiona: Do you have a specific writing style?
I don’t think you could really classify my writing as any one particular style; however, I have been told I write “classically,” and also most of my writing centers around love, passion and romance.
Fiona: How did you come up with the title?
My friend and fellow writer, Brooke Dylan and I desired to collaberate with our poetry, because she and I share so much in common and our styles are very similar. So, when we finally decided to do our book, the title just came to Brooke, and we decided to go with it.
Fiona: Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?
I would say the message of the book is never give up on love, for it is the most powerful force on earth.
Fiona: How much of the book is realistic ?
100 percent of it is realistic. After all, love is a universal language we can all relate to.
Fiona: Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?
Indeed, most every word, poem or story I write is based on my life experiences.
Fiona: What books have most influenced your life most? a mentor?
So many books and authors have influenced me, but if I had to choose a few they would be Pablo Neruda, Sylvia Plath, Poe, Irving, William Blake and of course my fellow writers on Writer’s Network and Love Poetry.
Fiona: What book are you reading now?
Right now I am reading Deborah Langford’s book, “Sweet Serenity.”
Fiona: Are there any new authors that have grasped your interest?
I am interested in fellow author Megan Goff’s book of poetry soon to be released.
Fiona: What are your current projects?
I am editing a novel/biography for a close friend and still doing some ghost writing on the side.
Fiona: Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.
My friend, Brooke Dylan.
Fiona: Do you see writing as a career?
Yes, definitely. A career as a writer is one that requires much devotion and passion, also a willingness to be very disciplined.
Fiona: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
No, I truly am satisfied with every single aspect of it. I am thrilled with how it turned out.
Fiona: Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
As I said, since a child, I have been intrigued with words and books, and naturally a desire to write followed shortly thereafter.
Fiona: Can you share a little of your current work with us?
Tears Of Deep Blue Eyes
Beautiful tears, flowing oh so gently
set deep blue, like morning dew
that lasts till dawn, receiving with arms
that you cannot resist her bountiful charms
with tears that wash away, temper as hot
as the flaming snow~
How she wanders, with her faithful steps of life
over limitless vastness of the universe
pathless and dangerous use of her muse
she wonders with desperation her space to be
emerged in loneliness and thorny bushes that prick
her very soul~
Those Blue eyes loved soooo very deep
she rises to the top totally enchanted
to visit his world one more time,
her blue eyes are a child on the charades of time
a gloomy earth she did perceive, but a lover brings her
full bloom, to a world of glorious new beginnings
a world that loved and cried BLUE TEARS~
Brooke Dylan @ December 27, 2015
With emerald eyes, the color of a willow’s wisp.. I see the voice of love capture its essence,
Greenest passion deepens to a darker jade
Remembrances of us, eye to eye, nose to nose shall never fade,
If only these eyes of green could step back in time
To that day on the bridge,
One that holds your deepest, fondest dreams
As the sun upon our love rained with rays of amber beams…
My mind and oh my hazel eyes, reflect each tender trace
The ones in which your fingertips drew hearts upon my face,
Oh that day, we know the one
It’s frozen in our mind
Nothing can erase the forest drawn like colors deep inside,
All these eyes of green must do to feel July again
Is thinking inside these rhymes to feel your tender hands that swept my skin,
I loved you then and even now
Although it’s locked away
The sweetest kiss our last perhaps is written on that summer’s day.
