“Sound bites, fast food, the early morning (and the early evening) rush, are the realities of our modern daily lives. Here is your bit of heaven, a time and space where you connect your soul, heart and mind.”
FORT LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA – Author and attorney Sherna Spencer, will debuted her book, Musing Aloud, Allowed, in October.

Musing Aloud, Allowed, is a collection of 40 poems which gives voice to contemporary social, cultural and political issues, including poems which provide a vivid picture of the immigrant experience and a recollection of Jamaican life and history. This book will give you a take away from your daily grind, feeding you with words that will inspire, make you laugh and keep you motivated all week long.
