“Be still in the storm because that is where we are reborn.” - Shundrey Patterson

Today’s featured author is a poet, storyteller, spoken word artist, essayist, genealogist, recovering journalist, self-taught cook, and ardent searcher of God’s face, Shundrey Patterson aka Shun P. Writes. Shun and I have a fun-filled chat about his books, “From the Water's Edge - A collection of Poetry Written While Wandering…”, why food is a poetic experience, and tons more!!!


Key Things You’ll Learn:

How he got into writing
