November Discovered Author: Janice Haskins-Scott

by Lindsay 11/2/2008 11:48:00 PM

Janice Haskins-Scott's collection of poetry was just the type of exemplary kind of bold writing we were looking to publish for our November Discovered Author.  Her collection of poems is now available in her new book, INSPIRATIONAL EVERYDAY POETRY- POETRY THAT INSPIRES.  Staggeringly insightful and profoundly personal, Janice courageously reveals, with poetic precision, stories and sides of herself that inspire and move by artfulness.


INSPIRATIONAL EVERYDAY POETRY is a kaleidoscope of poetry and passion that scales the everday possibilities and daily struggles with equal sensitivity, lyricism, intelligence and humor.  Having defeated a twenty-four year long drug and alcohol addiction, Janice has overcome a broken spirit by discovering the powers of her mind, understanding that hopelessness and discouragement could be squashed by wisdom and knowledge, transforming her inhibitions into strengths, and understanding that her past has prepared her for her future.  Janice has become a success, a self-taught writer who now lives her life substance-free and dedicated to fulfilling her life.

Janice has had some success as a writer before being chosen as WritingRoom's Discvoered Author:  In 2004, she was nominated as Poet of the year by the International Society of Poets.  In November 2007, she completed and published through Xlibris Publishing, her first poetry book, REFLECTIONS OF A WARRIOR - UNDERSTANDING SUBSTANCE ABUSE RECOVERY THROUGH POETRY, and a novel entitled, MISPLACED. She has been named one of the best poets of the year by the International Library of Poetry, for the years 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007and 2008.


INSPIRATIONAL EVERYDAY POETRY- POETRY THAT INSPIRES, is available at, and other online retailers.  Buy it now and be inspired! 


Remember~ We are continuously searching all the writings here at WritingRoom to find our next Discovered Author.  We are looking for a fabulous collection of poems and short stories, or a great novel.  Keep writing and keep posting, you could be our next Discovered Author!

A hearty congratulations to Janice! I've had the distinct pleasure of reading her work, and it was always superb! She's quite the talented poet, and if you haven't read her work yet, I highly recommend you do. In addition to Janice being a wonderfully talented writer, she also happens to be a truly wonderful person. She's been nothing but encouraging and kind to all. I'm proud to call her my friend!

CONGRATULATIONS TO JANICE!  Your writing skills are superb!  I read  MISPLACED from the beginning to the end.  I couldn't wiat to get home from work to curl up with this book.  It was hard to put down.  I would stay late at night reading it because I was so eagered to find out what was going to happen next.  There were many twists and jaw dropping events that kept me excited and wondering.  There is a lesson that can be learned from reading this book.  Please get it and read it; I'm sure you'll enjoy it as much as I did.  

A movie based on this book must be made...
