As a father of 7 and Grandfather of 26 I have found Merchild Land to be a book cherished by my kids and their kids. It is a nice to see a book that has the flavor of childerns books before these days of political correctness. The illustrations are immaginative and should be a great hit at bedtime.

A whimsical journey to a magical, undersea land awaits readers and small children who venture through the pages of Merchild Land.
Sylvia Ramsey has created a wonderful sleepy time book that conjures images of mermaids, seahorses and schools of fish in a make-believe land under the ocean waves. The poem found between the covers are excellent for children (especially young girls) ages 4-13. Ms. Ramsey wrote this book with her granddaughter in mind, whom she, “insisted I tell her about little mermaids and merchildren.”
My two step-daughters enjoyed the book immensely and said they were even able to use their imagination to visualize the various sea creatures that Ms. Ramsey wrote about in the poetry. I had the fortunate amazement that my youngest one even said she had dreams of mermaids and seahorses the following morning!

One of the most delightful children’s stories that I have had the experience to read! This Christmas I purchased four books to give to my grandchildren. They loved the merchildren and other creatures found in Merland – lots of questions were asked – a lot of learning took place and continues. A feature that I thought was great were the three or four blank pages at the back of the book that allow parents to write down childhood experiences that occur with their children as they grow. I’m sure my grandchildren will enjoy hearing about their young adventures after growing up. I remember my sons asking me about what they did when they were young. I highly recommend this lovely book.

We read this story at bedtime last night, and my kids loved it. This is one that we will surely read for a long time to come!
An Underground Jewell (Book) - 1/5/2011 4:09:22 PM
I just read a newly release book, An Underground Jewell by Sylvia L. Ramsey. I found this book on Amazon. Once I started reading it, I couldn't put it down until I finished. It is an espionage novel set in the near future. The plot kept me intrigued, there were other mysteries along the way to be solved, and the main character was fascinating. I recommend this as a good read for anyone who likes mystery, espionage or even just a good novel. I usually read Clive Clustler(adventure, Michael Connely (Detective stories), and John Gardner(spy),WEB Griffith( War and Spy).This novel also reflects what William Lutz, a Professor of English at Rutgers University in Camden, New Jersey, talks about in his book, New Doublespeak: Why No One Knows What Anyone's Saying Anymore. The novel takes this current trend to manipulate language, and projects it into a future that provides a scenario where a group of terrorists realize that they can use language as a weapon to take control of our nation.
The Old Back Porch (Short Story) - 1/18/2011 4:46:07 AM
Oh my do I remember the old front porch at my mothers house. My mother had a big green house on top of a hill that overlooked lake washington, directly across from mercer island. The front porch before it was screened in was the place large enough a family reunion just about all the time...

Wonderful writing, Sylvia. I can readily understand how re-reading it would help in your daily trials. I don't often admit it, but I gain much comfort at times by reading some of my own writing. I thank God for it, knowing it is given by Him.
A Dove's Lament (Poetry) - 7/30/2011 11:36:22 AM
This is poetry alive with compassion. Your emotions are so closely tuned to those of the immobile dove, and so well expressed, that I shared them with you both.
A Dove's Lament (Poetry) - 2/3/2011 9:17:57 PM
felt the anguish and tears began to flow
As I watched death’s cruel hand take its blow.
“How silly,” I said, “to feel empathy with a bird”,
But I knew, not feeling would be the thing absurd.
'Tis not absurd. It is the faithful wishing of the human heart to help all creatures.

The written word truly does come to life when it comes from the mind of the right person.
