SOMETIMES OUR DEMONS ARE NECESARY TO APPRECIATE HEAVEN
SOMETIMES MISTAKES REQUIRE A PRICE BEFORE FREEDOM
"Write Out Your Drops will dazzle you with poems about finding the strength to live your authentic self... Sometimes it's hard to put deep, complex thoughts and feelings into words, and this is where Senol-Akin's skill and talent come in. Even though the poems are about individual experiences, they are universal too. Some of the poems feel like songs, and this is because of the lovely lyricism they have. Some poems are more concrete, some abstract, but there is something for everyone here...Just like music is therapeutic, poetry can be too, as Senol-Akin shows. This poet conveys many moods, layers, and textures, showing that's it's okay to own your emotions and their origins. The phrasing is simple and easy, but conveys complex and moving ideas. Since some of the subjects of the poems are about psychological issues, family, and strong emotions, this collection of poems could serve as a self-help tool or would be great for classroom discussion or book club selection..."
Tammy Ruggles, Reader's Favorite Five-Star Review

Caroline Halstead, New York
"Senol-Akin's writing is lyrical and poetic...the kind of story that pulls you in and won't let you go! The descriptions of Norway are gorgeous"

"...In Senol-Akin's Catalyst... pensive
characters reveal their deepest thoughts, creating a mirror in which her contemporaries will see their own image..."
Author of 'The Northman's Daughter', winner of the Next Generation Book Award
"...encapsulates the very essence of being raised in an immigrant family in America..."- Five-Star Review for 'Set Free Your Flow'
A #1 seller , The Catalyst is the semi-autobiographical,
semi-fantastical 7-year culmination of the author's novel-writing journey that officially began in Stavanger, Norway- where the romantic suspense/murder mystery also takes place.
"This is a romantic thriller, but it's also about self-discovery," she says. "I've been blessed to have been able to connect with amazing readers, despite the misfortune of publishing during the tragic onset of COVID-19. I hope this website finds you in good health. May you always be on the lookout for positive Catalysts in your life"
The Catalyst (2021) updated edition is now available (print-on-demand) everywhere books are sold.
"An effective work of suspense fiction has the power to trap you in a nightmare in which formidable forces elude your comprehension and stand in your way with seemingly no escape. This is the kind of fate that Kaitlin Maverick faces in The Catalyst by Selin Senol-Akin... highly recommended if you want to read romantic suspense with an unexpected twist and a little supernatural element thrown into the mix"
Vincent Dublado, Reader's Favorite Five-Star Review

I don't know quite when
not sure quite how
has been able to survive
without crumbling by now
the struggle of trying to always reach out
prove my worth
and instill the same confidence
in the other
has often been taken advantage of
as they've drained my pure energy
to recharge their souls
leaving me weaker in my ether
often alone as I later suffer
