SPOTLIGHT ON: Sirrah Medeiros
How did you get involved in the Authors Supporting Our Troops event?
I joined the Authors Supporting Our Troops event through Facebook. As a Marine veteran, I wanted to get involved and support our troops overseas. Getting involved in this event is a small token of appreciation for all our service men and women that sacrifice so much for our nation. There is no way to completely thank them for their service. I hope by contributing to this event, they enjoy a bit of the comforts from home and know they are thought of daily.
What is your latest release and what genre is it?
My latest release is Seasons of Sentiment, A Collection of Poetry and Prose that touches on aspects of life and our relationships. There are a few short stories tucked in, but mainly it is poetry.
Quick description of it.
Seasons of Sentiment is an eclectic compilation of poetry and prose, crafted over several years that touches on the vast range of human emotions. Life is complex and the collection tries to touch on the many aspects of human relationships: love, loss, parenting, friendship, and everything in between.
Something unique about it.
I think there is something for everyone in the collection. Some pieces are quite deep and the reader will get a sense of penetrating emotion, sadness, love, or humor. There is quite a mix. I hope people will read each poem or story and connect on an individual level. My reason for writing each poem isn’t important, but pulling the reader’s emotion to the surface after he or she reads a piece in the collection, that is the goal.

Your short Bio.
Sirrah Medeiros was born in 1967, in Cleveland, Ohio, the youngest of seven children, and the only girl. Sirrah grew up in the small rural township, Rootstown, Ohio, before moving to Kingsport, Tennessee, where she graduated high school. She has spent much of her life traveling to, and living in, various parts of the world. A Marine Corps veteran, Sirrah uses much of that travel and life experience to enrich her writing, weaving tales of intricate texture and detail.
With a keen interest in science, Sirrah graduated from the University of Maryland with a BS in Environmental Management. Sirrah enjoys writing mysteries and horror stories often times based on a scientific theme.
Sirrah is the author of numerous short stories and poems. Most recently, Netbound Publishing published Sirrah in the horror anthology I BELIEVE IN WEREWOLVES. This collaborative effort contains her award-winning short story ONCE BITTEN – NOT SO SHY. The Spirited Woman’s New Year’s Top 12 Book List recognized Sirrah in January 2012 for this titillating story.
