About the Author

I grew up in the country of Upstate New York and now reside in the boonies of Midwestern Indiana. I am a coffee-addicted truck driver (as if there was any other kind). I have written poetry all my life. The topics and poems just come into my head. I try to write in the first person for most of them. I do this as people are more apt to relate to something when they are not feeling like they are the target. Some of my poems are true, either for me or for someone I know. I believe in magic and that life is worth living. I hope that my words will touch every reader in some way. I want everyone to open their eyes and really see what is before them.

one of life's simple pleasures.....curling up with cup of tea and good book. Cindy wrote a wonderful book of poems on everyday life. She has a way to capture feelings and then putting them into words about life... you will laugh and cry and related to alot of the poems written in her book. I would recommend "VOICES IN MY HEAD" to all age groups.

Voices in My Head by Cindy J Smith is a very powerful collection of poetry.  I completely felt like her voices were speaking to my voices.  Ms Smith covered the full range of emotions and topics, from the happy to the tragic.  I most enjoyed the nature poetry and felt the music behind the words.  And laugh....oh my, the Jeff Gordon Fan and the Notre Dame Fan made me laugh out loud.  There is definitely something for everyone in this collection.  Sliding right in to book 2...They Never Shut Up.

I saw the title of this book and thought "with a title like that I KNOW I'm gonna like it". I clicked the link and read a few samples and found out it was a book of poems. Never expecting that some of them would effect me as much as they did. But there was one that touched my heart so much that I made contact with the author to see how I could get myself a signed copy. I read the book in 1 day. I could feel myself starting to have a panic attack so I sat down to read and this book seem to have the effect I needed to not have an attack. I am so glad I found Cindy and hope to so much much more from her. BRAVO CINDY!!!

I wouldn't call myself a poetry guru, but I loved these amazing poems. Some are about love, others about loss, but they are all about this crazy thing we call life. I can see many on Hallmark cards. Everyone will find at least one of these poems touching, because they all pulled on my heart strings and one titled "Old man" hit the nail on the head. Give this book a try and you'll see, the poems will tear you up, make you think and make you appreciate life, maybe even restore your faith in human kind. I guarantee you, you'll find at least one poem that will hit close to home.

I would recommend this book to any one of all age groups. It is full of poems dealing with all aspects of life. People, nature, dreams all are represented in this wonderful book.

In “Voices in My Head”, Cindy J. Smith tells the reader about her life and her thoughts on the world around her through verse. She does a great job organizing the book by topic. Each poem contained within this collection is nice enough in its own right. However, as one progresses through the entire collection, there is a sameness about them. The rhythm and rhyme scheme maintain a “greeting-card” feel, as though one had fallen into a darker version of a Helen Steiner Rice anthology. Just when the reader is tempted to through their hands up and surrender, Ms. Smith DOES toss in something a little different. Then, it's back to her comfortable rhythm and rhyming scheme again. Please, Ms. Smith – you show that you have a talent for viewing the world and boiling it down to a short verse. Take a chance – experiment with other forms of poetry. Toss in a sonnet or two, or see if you can salute Dr. Seuss. Try Haiku, or a limerick, OR better yet, step out and move into something more progressive. You have a whole book – you're already taking a risk emotionally with your content, add to the challenge by stepping out technically, as well. RATING: 3 1/2 stars, rounded down to 3 stars where 1/2 stars are not permitted. DISCLOSURE: I was awarded a free copy of this book in a random draw. No requirement of a review was made, let alone any conditions on the tone / content of a review However, a prompt review was definitely hoped for. (Nope, it took me 2 years to get through this volume, a bit at a time. Nothing to do with the content or style; I am simply more likely to pick up a physical book than those tucked away on my e-device.)

This collection is about love, sorrow, even grief, melded in the crucible of life. The author, Cindy J. Smith, is a truck driver who is blessed with a natural gift. Often while driving through the night, when all is quiet, she is hearing these voices flowing through her mind. She sees herself as their vessel. They force her to deliver them to paper, and she does so with a gentle hand, making her mark with simplicity, and with heart wrenching honesty. Here are but a few of these voices in her head: The winds of change are blowing cold Within my world today. My dreams of love and happiness Have all been drawn away. And here, an excerpt from OLD MAN: As you sit out on your porch In your old rocking chair Wondering why no one Ever comes visit you there You are thinking of your children Are they all full grown Where are they? How are they? Why have they left me alone? And here, from OH, MY CHILD I’ve been wanting to show you How very much I care, But you are in your own world There’s no room for me there If you love poetry, Voices in My Head would be a treat for you. Five stars.

I received this wonderful book of poems as a gift from Cindy. I cried tears of joy and sadness as I could related too the heartfelt emotion that she poured out on these pages for the depths of her soul. This incredible Women has a rare and unique gift and I am honored to know her not only as an Author but also as a friend that hold a special place in my heart.

Cindy has put together some of the most inspiring poems that I have had the pleasure of reading. She just seems to have a grasp of words that just hit home - almost seems like you can pick the poem that fits your day. I am looking forward to reading more poems from this talented and gifted Poet.
