About Elizabeth Shane
Elizabeth Shane is a full-time mother, volunteer for the elderly within the community, part-time author, survivor. She supported Quetzal with its exhibition ‘Quetzal Stories of Change‘ and by hosting a Meet the Author event at Quetzal.
She only started writing poetry just over two and a half years ago. Before that, She had never read or written a poem before. Through support from her drama teacher, she was encouraged to discover life through the power of writing and given a safe space to explore her emotions. As well as writing for enjoyment, she began using it as a tool to process some of my painful thoughts and feelings through poems and wrote her first book, ‘Silhouette of a Songbird’
She hopes by sharing her journey through the power of poetry, it gives other survivors support, strength, and comfort to know there is light on the other side and they are not going through this alone.
About the Book
Elizabeth is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. The traumatic effects of this left many emotional scars as well as complex PTSD, in a life often hidden by silence. Throughout different stages of her recovery, Silhouette of a Songbird witnesses Elizabeth’s personal struggle on her journey to unlock the pain of reclaiming her voice through the power of poetry. By sharing her own experience, she hopes this will provide support and strength to others who have suffered similar childhood trauma, with the knowledge that they are understood and not walking through the storm alone.
