"I am absolutely blown away by Dr. Anita Nahal’s poetry and flash fictions. She is truly amazing! I have known her for over 15 years, and have kept abreast of her thought-provoking writings, and now with these two books, I feel I am walking with an international poet laureate! Her vision and talent are humbling.”
~Dr. Gwendolyn Scotton Bethea, formerly director, Writing Program and Preparing Future Faculty, Howard University ~
"In your poems...Migratory birds and An immigrant mother sings, I found the same anguish and apprehension as in Phyllis Wheatley’s poetry... In the same light, I can almost associate Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, and Maya Angelou in some of your poems."
~Dr.Meenakshi Mohan, educator, writer and artist.
