Product description

About the Author

Elias Raven was born and raised in Los Angeles. He’s an avid reader with a lifelong passion for writing. He’s a storyteller, a poet and a talented musician with an amazing voice. Oh, and let’s not forget an amazing cook! As a young boy he spent many summers reading classics such as "The Adventures of Sherlock Homes" and "The White Company" by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. His creativity was constantly being pushed as he learned more and more about the world around him. His taste in literature spanned from classics to science fiction/fantasy. He expanded his taste devouring everything from William Blake to Milton, Dante, Baudelaire, Arthur Rimbaud, T.S. Elliot, Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Khalil Gibran, William Carlos Williams, Ezra Pound, Paul Verlaine, Walt Whitman, Alan Ginsburg, Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs, Carl Sandburg, Dylan Thomas, and Jim Morrison. These inspirations and his sheer love for reading had him take pen to paper around the age of 20. Did I mention he’s a Musician? ...You can often find him playing his guitars (both electric and acoustic) and keyboards and singing (4 octave ranges) in his home studio. He’s a classically trained music aficionado -trained early on by Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart, Hayden, Liszt, as well as Big Band, Jazz and Rag Time. Spending time with his father at the Los Angeles Philharmonic; experiencing his first orchestra concert at the age of 9. Elias the Gourmet Cook…Oh My!...His Japanese mother and grandmother trained him very well in fine culinary skills both in cooking and food appreciation from all over the world such as Italian, Indian, Moroccan, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, Korean, Hawaiian, Pilipino, Greek, and Polish. When Elias is not reading, writing, composing music or cooking…he can be found listening to music, playing games, hanging out with his kids. He enjoys going to concerts, going on culinary adventures, sightseeing, spending the day at the beach or in the mountains…just doing something adventurous!

This was a fun and quick read. What a beautiful mix of different styles of poetry. Some made me smile with sweetness, others were so HOT they made me blush Woohooo! And some of them, Conversation and Revelation, left me thinking.
I'm new to this author's writing and I love it.

This is truly a magnificent collection of poetry. So many raw emotions and pain filled words. There is also beauty and grace and elegance in the writings. Some are very hot and oh so steamy. Truly a very gifted and talented group of writers. A must read for any poetry lover!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Collection of Poetry 28 Nov. 2015
By Maria G. Martinez - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have always thought poetry was a author's way of so eloquently describing the emotions that I could not quite find a way to express at times.
Elias Raven and all the poets here have that rare gift of evoking just the right set to bring life to those feelings.
From the heights and depths of the soul. Each one is a word picture of your thoughts.
I highly recommend you take the time to read these poems and maybe see yourself in a few of them.
Well done to Elias and all the other talented authors collected here.
5.0 out of 5 stars This Poetry Collection is Beautiful! 5 Sept. 2016
By Peach.Sangria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
What I have always loved about poetry is it's ability to allow another heart to transfuse yours. Another perspective, of the cracks or canyons, to shift our own landscape. Elias Raven's poetry along with his guests point out the necessity of hope, the beauty that lies in wait: under the bed covers or within a rainy day. He reminds us that passion is possible, and to always see with wonder and gentle eyes. Buy this poetry book, and fall into a beautiful world, that shimmers through the author's hearty words.
