Around The Bend – From Her To Me
I started writing this book when I was nineteen years old as a way to deal with what I was going through. I was a normal teenage girl at the beginning of my journey. I came from a good family who provided the best for me and surrounded by friends who meant the world. I had no idea of what was waiting for me. I was full of spirit, fight, ideals that the world was going to provide great things for me but that was not my destiny.
I went away to college a free spirited girl with a skip in my step and came back broken and shattered. I had to redefine who I had been, who I was, who I wanted to be after a boy took everything away from me. One night changed my entire life. One night changed who I would be. This is my journey. This is my love story. This is my honor.
The events in this book are all true. However, details about people and places were changed to protect both the innocent and the guilty. This book in it's initial birth was never meant to bloom but the more I wrote, the more I realized how beautiful this girl's journey was. I realized how important it was to share my story with the world not just for my own healing but for other survivors out there. We are not alone even if we feel like we have been abandoned. Love heals in strange ways.
About Jeseca Robin Lowell (Raleigh, North Carolina Author)
I started writing when I was ten years old. During that time in my life, I did not feel like I had many friends so one day I bought a journal and started writing. I can still recite the very first poem I wrote. To this day I can still relate to those very first words. I grew up Catholic and attended Catholic school for most of my education but I never fell into line. I had my own thoughts, my own beliefs, my own direction. I was never one to follow the crowd.
My life has been full of ups and downs, rights and wrongs, lessons that I have kept with me along the way. Now in my mid-thirties, I am pursuing the one dream that has stuck with me throughout all my changes. I am raising a teenage daughter with my wonderful husband. I am the mother of two cats just trying to live my life the best way I know how.
I have three other published books currently. They are the poems that I have written over the last twenty years. I chose to take Around the Bend to market because I believe that it best explains why I am the way I am. I have never given up in my life and have been blessed with a determination that will not yield. I am a Poet at heart.
