Welcome to Shnette.com...

The Promise, Sh'nette's first book, is now available on Amazon.com as an e-book. Click inside the Latest Product Release box featured below for more details about reading a copy. The melodic tale is written as if the storyteller stands in front of the reader reciting the story. The Promise  recounts a satirical relationship interwoven between man, world, and universe. A bit of mystical element helps shape the tale from commencement as it describes the birth of Earth. The baby planet is guarded by celestial bodies, such as Sun and Moon, that are personified as perceptive beings.

Over the course of the story the entire heaven of celestial bodies must contemplate how far the mother of Earth will go to save her child from the destructive force of Man. Hints of science fiction pulls the reader through to the end as a chosen individual sets out to reach the heavens.

The featured poem is titled  For Silly Boys Who Become Intelligent Men. Inspiration to write this piece came from listening to a TED talk given by Curtis "Wall Street" Carroll while serving his sentence at San Quentin Prison.
