The Imitators of Life's Playwright, Velma Perry Releases Book of Poetry

The Grace of God Journey Pieces in Poetry.

Decatur, IL, July 26, 2009 --( The Grace of God

Beginning her literary aspirations writing poetry, Ms. Perry has evolved into a playwright for Christian theatre. However, she returned to her love of poetry to produce, The Grace of God, her first published book of poetry.

The Grace of God is a book of “journey pieces” in poetry (prose) which questions and answers to her humanism. Ms. Perry states, “I thank God for these “journey pieces” for they incorporate love, tears, laughter, irritation, joy, sadness and anger that has strengthen and blessed while allowing me the opportunity to truly look in the mirror at myself if I dare… and I dare because I do not claim to be perfect but I am forgiven and I choose to get back up and try again.”

The book is self-published and can be purchased online on
