Writers Inspiring Change book review: Lyrics of Life

Lyrics of Life, by Barbara Roman is a very soothing and self-reflective reading experience.

The author provides a backdrop on her lyrical poetry, giving insights about life and how the themes and verses of her poetry are very relatable to our own lives. Reading her short narrations, which precede and follow each group of lyrics, one senses the more aesthetic and subliminal beauty of life, both in joy and sadness, because the author is speaking her truth, about her life and her experiences, but in such a way that anyone can relate. Reading her book reminds us of the magical power of prose and musical lyrics, and why they stay with us throughout our lives and continue to echo down the corridors of time.

About B. Roman

Since childhood, I've been torn between two worlds: writing and singing. It's difficult to serve two inspirational Muses, but I was compelled to do so. When I was not singing, I was writing; when I was not writing, I was singing. I've learned, for me, that one creative expression nurtures the other. Much of my writing has a musical theme somewhere in the plot, or is the basis for the plot.

It is natural, therefore, that my 5-book Moon Singer Series has its roots in musical theories and metaphors, entwined with the magic and mystery of metaphysical concepts and matters of ethics, faith, compassion, love, and heroism. Whether it's in my novels, non-fiction essays, in picture books and stories for children and, of course, in writing music and lyrics for songs, the profound connection between music, life, and self-identity is purposeful.

On the other side of the spectrum, my suspense novels are a departure from a higher consciousness to the mundane world of flawed humans, amoral people committing immoral crimes and eventually paying the price for their transgressions. Penning a thriller sort of grounds me and helps to clear my mind of darker thoughts so I can go back to writing empowering fantasies.

I hope you will delight in their messages just as I was delighted to write them.
