Author Biography

Lashonda Beauregard is a author/songwriter from Alexandria, Louisiana. She's a graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Lashonda is the songwriter of the song "Black Diamonds" by the artist Songbird. Lashonda enjoys writing song lyrics and poetry and is the author of eight published books. "I used to be really shy in school. Back in high school I was actually voted most bashful (shyest girl). I had teachers and professors who told me I was a good writer. I like to write lyrics and books that inspire and stay with people long after they hear my songs and after they read the last page of my book. I believe that words are powerful, you can motivate and inspire people just by words that you pick up a pen and write."

Lashonda's Book of Poems and Songs is wonderful for addressing emotional situations such as love, nostalgia, the beautiful things in life, and finding courage in oneself through poetry. Lashonda Beauregard splendidly uses harmonious poetic elements to orchestrate short poems, the representation of her own experiences. She shares all of herself with us, what is in her heart, her dreams and truths, as can only be transmitted through good poetry and dedication. The poems are very enjoyable and inspirational, concrete and full of meaning. Lashonda's Book of Poems and Songs helps us see everything differently and tells us that life will give us all kinds of experiences, good or bad, but by accepting love and appreciating the details around us, everything can be better.

It's wonderful to come across books like this. Lashonda's Book of Poems and Songs has a magnificent composition in the poems. The words reflect what Lashonda Beauregard has lived and experienced in a very relatable way. What I like about this book is the strength that she manifests, the motivation that she gives to become as strong as a diamond. It is very nice to have a reminder that it is good to look back on our lives, to accept nostalgia, and continue on our way with all the experiences that come with it, as well as not letting go of our dreams. We all have stories to tell, but it is the way they are told that makes them shine, and this book is the perfect representation.
