When it comes to providing information to the public or introducing a brand, a radio interview is one of the best mediums to use. That is why, in cooperation with CBS Radio’s host Benji Cole and Citi of Books publishing, the inspiring and amazing stories behind every author’s work will be heard.
CBS Radio host interviews the author of the poetry book “The Struggle to Find True Love,” Holly Flame Maxey. They delve into the author’s inspiration and message for writing such a beautiful and majestic collection of poems.
Holly Flame Maxey was born in October of 1976; therefore, she is a Libra. She has dedicated her entire life to the pursuit of justice, truth, love, and trust. The most elusive of these is love and trust.
Maxey was born a poet and a dreamer. She feels life’s energy all around her. She wants the world to know that everyone and everything is connected by the same life energy. If people knew this, the world would be a better place to live in and raise our children in. It does take a village to raise a child. To her, that statement means that diversity is what drives life. If a child is raised by just their family, their viewpoint of the world would be drastically smaller than if they were raised by a variety of people with many different viewpoints in life. Our children do not belong to us. They belong to tomorrow.
During the interview, the author read one of her poems that speaks about the beauty of life and darkness. To quote some lines from that poem, “What is life? What is the truth? How can we appreciate life without feeling the hot breath of darkness constantly on our back?” It reflects the beauty of our struggles in life; we cannot live without experiencing pain, and we cannot appreciate love without heartbreaks.
“The Struggle to Find True Love” is Maxey’s journey to find truth in love. This book represents her journey to share her inner world. She struggles to obtain her one true love. She prays that this book will open the possibility that she will find herself with him for all the days of their lives.
