My guest today, poet Sharla Shults has a very impressive, rich, and unique poetic background.  Her verses are composed with beauty and harmony, rising into the beauty of the night sky with universal harmony and stellar qualities. Her poems are as lovely as a bride in white, a lovely spiritual tone , pure and joyful. bringing new life to the meaning of poetry
Let’s listen to what she tell us here…My name is Sharla Shults. I am extremely pleased today to be a  guest of  Maxima. His soulfulwriting is an inspiration of mine so when he extended the invitation,I felt  deeply honored.Thank you, Maxima!

Welcome to my world…You can find me on any given day at my computer with coffee cup, pen and notepad.The coffee gives me that much needed boost of energy plus I just l ove   the taste of coffee. Of course, it all starts in the morning when the aroma of that dark,     rich liquid infiltrates my nostrils even before getting out of bed. (Thank you, Honey!) The pen and pad? Well, even though most of my drafting is on the computer, there are always occasions when a random thought must be written down right then and there within a moment’s notice before it becomes nothing more than a mere fleeting moment.

From mathematician to writer…

Through the years leading up to the publication of my first book in 2004, I never envisioned myself as a writer. I was a loving wife and mother devoted to family (still that today!), mathematician and educator, content on teaching and working in various arenas with youth in middle and high school.I enjoyed writing little poetic notes and wrote my first poemto my husband (Jim) on his birthday in 2004.

That was the beginning! From there, I began to challenge my students: creating curriculum that went outside the basic equation into the realm of creativity. Have you ever been given a poetic math challenge? My students were given just that: a challenge where imagination  reigned and creativity soared. As a result of that unusual beginning, I am now on the   verge of publishing my third book..WOW! Number three! As I look back to my writing’s inspection .                                                                 …
