Self Published Author
Dee Freeman

Delores King-Freeman, (Dee to family), is a motivated and compelling poet and author, who left the south during the sixties to follow her dream, which proved extremely elusive. Now, finally living that dream, she happily immerses herself in her passion-writing. Freeman has previously published a well received book of poetry entitled Oceans of Love: To Us From Us. She provides The New Citizens Press (a newspaper distributed throughout Michigan) with its, Nu poetry column. She has published numerous other poems; many of which have been recognized with awards for their inspirational, even motivational message. Occasionally, she provides The Lansing State Journal with an article or word of inspiration. She co-hosts poetry slams held at various locations throughout the Greater Lansing area. Freeman looks forward to expanding her Poetree-N-Motion program which has a 30 minute time slot on a local PA station. She is also a talented musical lyricist, hoping to have her work recorded in the near future.

Presently, Freeman is working on her first fiction novel, to be published by the end of 2005. That will be followed by the remainder of the Poetry, She Wrote series- books of inspiration, motivation and romance.

This book Poetry, She Wrote I: Oh Magnify Him is a collection of poetry that magnifies the majesty and omnipotence of our Creator. This collection expresses the reality of the presence of an Awesome power, who maintains our destiny and fate. This all powerful presence can be felt by anyone who has the ability to tune in to oneself, to keep an open mind and believe. This belief can open the emotional window to the heart and provide an inspirational healing. There is a deep and sobering love for self and creator, embodied by this poetry. This particular collection emphasizes strong faith and a wish to implement, into our meager lives, the winning combination of belief and prayer to secure the promises of His Word.

The words are powerful, thought-provoking, and spiritually stirring; some inspiring; some sympathetic; some stimulating; some focus on self-love; some speak of movement through life?s phases-not aware of our destiny; some address how our loving creator watches over us; yet all echo the desire and longing each soul has, to connect with this Creator, in some manner, in order to understand the real meaning of life.

The poems can be of great benefit -touching, healing, awakening, soothing. They encourage us to glorify our awesome creator. They promote humility, reflection and praise. All can enjoy this journey through life. Even though life itself is a risk--a tumultuous trip of ups and downs, highs and lows; it is yet a necessity. When we praise him, connect with him, follow his lead, experience His unlimited Grace, we will undoubtedly feel His presence and enjoy the journey-from beginning to end!!

This poetry addreses life from a woman's point of view as she journeys,searching every nook and cranny; scanning the heavens and peering into the depths of her soul to find awareness, answers and truth.. Join Dee in her zealous quest to ignite newness you'll forever cherish."

"The optimism in Dee Freeman's third volume of poetry is just as contagious as in her first volume, Oceans of Love: To Us From Us From the opening epigraph from Herman Hesse's Reflections, which stresses the oneness of all living beings, to the self-eulogy that ends Part II of Poetry She Wrote, Freeman traverses a plethora of emotions from yearning, to resolution, I always knew she possessed tremendous spiritual beauty. I am glad she decided to share this beauty with the world in such a beautifully organic manner." Lovalerie King, PhD; Assistant Professor of African American Literature, Penn State University.

"Just imagine with me, a little kinky haired girl, who moves through life's journey with a key stroke and a pen from knowing nothing about the world, to a star of a woman who can explore the universe through her poetry and declare Still Me This is a masterpiece,A work of art. So genuine, so rich in thought, and so well blended in mind, body, and soul" Geraldine Smothers, MPA, RHIA, CSL, CPHQ President and CEO, Professional Dynamic Network, Inc. The Jordan Evans Institute.

Delores King-Freeman voices deep love for her people in these poems. Her utmost belief is that love for self is the fundamental key to the survival and revival of a people grossly wronged, demeaned, dehumanized and partially destroyed. Her passionate plea is for universal love.

Her words are powerful and thought-provoking; some informative; some sympathetic; some stimulating; some frank and to the point; some highlight the real deal on self-love; some talk to what is owed to us; some make it known that we owe much to ourselves; some are fun loving; but all echo the black experience.

Delores emphasizes our ancestors are yet watching-hoping to see signs of victory over hatred imbedded within us during those inhumane slavery years. She states each generation is an investment in life, as the lives of our fore fathers influence ours today; and our evolution will be the foundation for our heirs. Each person has a duty to live, love and leave a legacy.

The poems can be of great benefit touching, healing, awakening, and soothing. They encourage involvement. All can enjoy life's journey, even though a risk . . . a tumultuous sea of ups and downs . . . it is yet a necessity. Enjoy the ride!
