Elsie Ray leads a quiet life in South Texas, full to the brim with close friends, house plants, and pets. With a deeply rooted curiosity about the human experience, she finds inspiration in relationships and nature. She is a creative expression and mental health enthusiast who hopes to share the powerful impact of introspection, therapy, boundaries, and self-care. Elsie has harnessed her two greatest passions, writing and photography, to bring us her first publication, Unbecoming.
It's always special to find an author who has a way with words, and Elsie Ray is one of those authors. Her collection of poetry, called "Unbecoming", is described as a "healing journey," and the poems discuss relationships, social issues, mental illness, love, and life lessons. Sometimes poetry can be so deep that it's difficult to understand, but Ray manages to write in a way that is both meaningful and digestible. Not only are her words beautiful, but so is the art that is shared throughout, which was inspired by the author's life in Texas. Anyone who picks this book up will be able to find something beautiful and relatable within the pages. Ray's work is sure to inspire many readers for years to come. - Ann Collins, Book Reviewer
