Alice Carlton - Soul Poetry

About the Author:
Alice grew up in Old Town, Maine ("Heaven") and joined the army right out of high school at age 18. She was stationed at the Presidio of San Francisco at the height of the Vietnam War...major culture shock. Her life experiences have led her to write her memoir (Ghost Child to
Triumph--from a child with no voice, to someone who speaks up against injustice), and of course her poetry book.

Endorsements for her memoir are: Dr. Larry Dossey, Dr. Frank M. Ochberg, Dr. Elaine Weiss, Patricia Evans, Alice Miller, Clint van Zandt, Dr. Ellen Langer Dr. Tracy Kemble, Dr. Kim Anderson, Jacqueline Castine, and a woman who wished to remain anonymous who gave the most powerful comment: "She stopped me from committing suicide and gave me a reason to live."

Endorsements for her poetry: Elie Weisel, Wayne Dyer, Nikki Giovanni, Katherine Nuyens, Dr. Elaine Weiss, Dr. Pamela Blair.

She believes we are all here to make a difference, and is the moderator of an abused survivors' group.

She won a women's scholarship, because of what she has overcome in her life and is in school at age 63. The premise of her memoir is that no matter what we have experienced, we do have choices as adults, and can make some good decisions and choices for our lives.
