This book is a collection of poetry chronicling my life?s experiences. It?s geared towards women empowerment. I talk about a lot of taboo subject like abortion, fornication, adultery, vanity and betrayal. As well as spirituality, love, motherhood, entrepreneurship and life purpose. Not only do I talk about these things but I explain how I have learned from them. Gut wrenching issues told in the rawest form. Things only a woman can give birth to. The Belly of a Woman In this no holds barrd tell all Shanet Dennis gives you her gut wrenching story in the rawest of forms. The Belly of a Woman is more than an autobiographical poetry book. This collection of poetry chronicles the life experiences of a young woman loved, scorned, betrayed, scarred by abortion, weakened from giving her power to men, and searching for a purpose in life. Growing tired of shouldering her problems, she inherited a desire and unfailing courage to finally change her situation for the better. ?Shining light on the behavior and reasons why so many young women and men are unhappy, and go through life not realizing, not knowing that they have choices. The Belly of a Woman encourages that even happiness can be a choice?it just takes work to get there, but it?s so worth it.?- Anne Kempner Fisher, Literary Editor

About the author (2009)

Born and raised in the Los Angeles area, Shanet has aspired to write since the early age of seven. Before the talented author decided to get lost in her writing endeavors, her career in acting was on the rise. She studied acting in grade school and took college level courses while paying her dues as an extra on such shows as Girlfriends, The Parkers, ER, Friends and many others. She could also be seen in such music videos as Floetry?s Say Yes, Busta Rhymes and Diddy?s Pass the Courvoisier, Ushers You Don?t Have to Call, and Missy Elliot?s Pass That Dutch. Not wanting to be labeled as a video girl, she quickly shied away from the video gigs and kept her focus strictly on long-term acting opportunities. Shanet finally gained enough experience to join the Screen Actors Guild after working on the hit movie Friday After Next. She soon went on to take stand-in jobs for Megan Good in You Got Served, as well as Christina Milian in Love Don't Cost a Thing. Her small appearance in Hussle and Heat featuring Dwayne Martin and Vivica Fox was her last in the acting genre. The time away from home and family during her acting career proved to be too costly and catapulted her decision to focus on her writing. Forced to take on a full-time accounting job to pay the bills, the dream of publishing her first book didn?t happen overnight. It did however, come with time and years of life lessons. Now author, entrepreneur and founder of GAB Publishing, Shanet is a prime example that with prayer, a pen, and a plan, you can truly write your own destiny.
