No Longer Hidden is an account of my journey through life, captured in metaphorical images and lyrical format. Poetry permits a person to see through a kaleidoscopic lens as the sequence of life events presents challenges that would be unbearable if not written in melodic form. Where the book serves as a cutting board for me, a space for dissecting my innermost feelings, it is also an entree served to the reader, since one may be able to absorb secret truths as he or she ingests each piece of poetry.

The debut book by Bathsheba Smithen invites readers along as she, at the age of 25, confronts the harsh realities of her existence-the product of adultery between her mother and a married pastor; growing up as one of twelve children; and being molested in early adolescence. Who Cares What You Think...So What You Think? is an urban, creative memoir that concerns the emotional struggles of a young woman who finds it difficult to embrace her identity in the midst of an often judgmental society.
