Author Biography

Poetry is my life, In-fact, at times too much so. There are nights I stay awake well into the hours of the following day, due to only the possibility that a poetic work will come to fruition and find the eyes of someone that will be touched by the piece enough to say, "wow", or something indicative of a positive emotional response. It's what I write for. If your art cannot be shared and appreciated, then what good is it at all? If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? We have all heard that one before, and the answer is, who cares, nobody heard it. Far better than stimulating someones brain by way of entertainment, is awakening their mind with a piece so laden in fiduciary annotations that you just might change their whole perspective on the world for the better. I believe I have a few a those; a few pieces of significants which you may find to be worth your money and time. I am an agnostic thinking, non-conformist, and I started my wander into ponder and my writing at a very young age. I have scribed all my intellectual conclusions which pertain to my views on the ways of the world's politics and religions, as well as my multitude of horror, science fiction, and love stories, and put them in these books to share with the world. Take a look inside one and change your literary world forever. There's a new world to be seen; and it's filled with a wild and eclectic, intellectually charged collection of literary works that bear a similitude to nothing else you've ever seen.
Original and fresh, something for everyone.

My Eclectic Collection: From the Confines of my Mind (Volume 1) By Ronald Allen Bell is a collection of poems on life and love. The poems include I Am A Machine.

"I am a machine - I will go to work.
Then the house I’ll surely clean.
Dinner I will make,
power down,
repeat,
I am machine."

I think this shows the monotony that we go through on a daily basis and how we automatically perform these daily tasks without thinking - like a machine. I think that the poem On Peace Do I Ponder is particularly poignant and will resonate with people, considering the current state of the world and everything that has happened recently in the news.

"A world unified is a world wherein none will have power over another, therefore you will not see it anytime soon I am afraid."

This is a very true statement. While we all strive for peace, it seems unobtainable in this day and age.

Ronald Allen Bell has produced a nice collection of poems in My Eclectic Collection: From the Confines of my Mind (Volume 1). It reads more like a journal than a book of poetry. The pictures add to this look. It is the kind of book where you could find a poem to suit your current mood, so it would be good to have at hand. I think that this will be quite marketable as an insight into a person's mind and the way they view the world. I think the author has talent and will do well with his poems.
