Many people are sure to find this book both entertaining and interesting. Many poems are to be read as a dialogue, echoing in the reader's mind things they have thought and reflecting feelings that they have felt. It is a book that details the poetic view of this broad human experience called life."

1 Terry O'Neal 2002 Apr 21
"She is the self-published author of the books entitled Motion Sickness, and her latest book, The Poet Speaks In Black. Though her poetry is written with ease and grace, it is the power behind her words that is most exceptional. She clutches upon the emotions that lie in the pit of our souls, translating everyday life into dynamic poetry."

2 Def Poetry Jam 2002 Apr 03
"For when human beings across the planet simultaneously uttered that first initial sound, they gave rise to the same echo heard in the wail of every newborn child. The sound of that cry might be onomatopoeic, but its meaning is quite literal. 'I am here now!' This is the essential affidavit that serves as testament inside every person's compulsion to give voice to the voice, as condition urges vision, vision provokes thought as thought pronounces the name of God: 'I matter, too!' Thus, the birth of the word, the root of every language."

Val loves edutaining her audiences with witty, thought-provoking inspiring pieces that will fire up your soul and always leave you wanting more."
