In this, her first full-length collection of romance poetry, Ellenelizabeth Cernek takes the reader on a journey to interior and exterior landscapes. Exploring the terrain of love against the backdrop of places as far apart as Hunter Mountain, NY, and Alexandria, Egypt, Ellenelizabeth uses poetry as both roadmap and script. Each poem is transporting, each page takes us further away. For the romantic that resides in every beating poetic heart.
Ellenelizabeth Cernek is a Sedona, AZ, resident who enjoys art in all forms. Her sixth-grade teacher gave an assignment to write a poem. After she read Ellenelizabeth's first poem the teacher gave her a blank book and a new pen and told her to never stop writing. In addition to being a writer, Ellenelizabeth is also a painter and photographer. She works in oil, acrylic, and watercolors. She has shown her art along the boardwalk of Wildwood, NJ, where she received honorable mention at the age of 9, and at The Cathedral Arts Festival sponsored by Grace Church in Jersey City, NJ. She loves to combine her art forms. An avid traveler, Ellenelizabeth writes about the places, cultures, and people that have touched her life. Her work reflects different dimensions of space and culture she has absorbed in her travels. Ellenelizabeth's work has been published at The Rift, Wings Literary Magazine, and several online poetry sites. This is her first collection.
