Steele, North Dakota, Poet Publishes New Book "When You Don't See the Light"
Steele, North Dakota October 03, 2013 Entertainment News(PRLEAP.COM) "When You Don't See the Light," a new book by Troy Brusven, has been released by RoseDog Books
Troy Brusven began writing poetry in second grade. Words on paper made no sense to him, but words within the words went together as poetry.
Troy started small. As he progressed in school, he started writing essays in poetry. He would receive extra credit for them.
At nineteen, Troy had his first poems published after quitting drinking for a while. The book was sold for the poor and needy.
Troy's best writing came from his heart after his mother died. He was not going to write again after the poem he wrote for her funeral. Five years later he began again on July 27, 2012. This was one day after the anniversary of his mother's death. He picked up the plaque with his mother's poem on it, read it, and tried to donate it to the funeral home in his hometown. They said that poems are a family thing. Troy wanted his mom's poem seen and attributed to her. Maybe it could relate to someone else with loss.
This book is a tribute to Troy's mom.
