About the Book:
Title: My Life: Poetic Literature
Author: Charles Leon Fantroy
Publisher: ‘JourStarr Quality Publications
MY LIFE: POETIC LITERATURE is a compilation which derives from my many thoughts over a span of thirteen years.
My poetic words speak to the multitude of those who encounter hardship and encourage all to overcome the adversities that one faces. I aim to have my words reverberate from a mental realm; because if a particular plight cannot be handled mentally, than the physicalities are but a hindrance.
The mind is the maker and the molder of all conditions.The thoughts that I’ve transcribed onto paper are channeled to positively engage and to motivate all; no matter nationality or creed. I myself am a voice with an abundance of thoughts to share.
For More Information
My Life: Poetic Literature is available at Amazon.

Charles, thanks for being my guest. Tell us about you.
I’m extremely strong driven, especially when it comes to the completion of a project. I believe that no matter how dire one’s predicament, there is still room to flourish. And that philosophy has been indoctrinated in my own way of life, hence with that belief, makes me me.
If you could hang out with one famous person for one day, who would it be and why?
That one person would be Ben Affleck. I have a number of completed movie scripts and Ben Affleck being the professional that he is on camera as well as his directing capabilities, I believe that our collaborating on a number of projects would make for a plethora of quality movies being brought to the big screen. I want the reader to get a general idea from the very first poem, that the words that I bring forth in MY LIFE: POETIC LITERATURE aren’t just a testament to my own growth and development, but also to send a concise message that no matter what one may endure, the strength to overcome should be much greater.
What’s the story behind your latest book?
I started off writing poetry at nineteen years old as a way to express myself. The thought at the time of actually having my deepest thoughts one day published was never a thought. But over the years as I’ve delved more into embracing my potentiality to possibly share my words as upliftment to those who may be unsure as to the trajectory in which their life is headed.
What is your writing process?
In regards to poetry, once I bring the title of the poem to fruition, that guides me to formulate the poetic words onto paper.
What are you working on next?
I have a novel/movie script which is titled ONE WOMANS JOURNEY about a young mother name Sharee who is a young mother of two boys who lives in Inglewood California. Sharee is a product of the streets with a bad reputation. She is falsely accused of a crime and sentenced to thirty years in prison. While in prison her oldest son is violently killed, which causes Sharee to change her violent life style in hopes of making it out to her only remaining son who has now followed his older brothers path of a life of crime.
What advice do you have for other writers who want to get the word out about their book?
First, in anything you do, you do it from the heart, and I believe that genuineness will reverberate to others. Secondly, encircle yourself with people who genuinely believe in your craft. And thirdly stay persistent because behind a hundred rejections, there are two hundred acceptances. But you’ll never know unless if your stay persistent.
What is your favorite book on your shelf right now?
My favorite book right now I would have to say is: “THE FOUNDATIONS OF SCREENWRITING” By: Syd Field, which gives an in depth step by step guide to the art of writing a movie script.
Do you have any special/extraordinary talents?
Well as far as special/extraordinary talents. I don’t know if this would be extraordinary, but I can write a novel from beginning to end in my end, then transcribe it onto paper.
You are given the choice of one super power. What super power would you have and why?
That one super power by far would be to better educate the youth, no matter nationality or creed. Too many of the youth do not understand that their actions of today can and will inevitably affect their actions of tomorrow. The kids are our future and that one super power would go to the advancement of the youth in believing that anything is possible if they just believe.
List 5 things on your bucket list:
- To see a number of my novels adapted into full length movies.
- To start a mentoring program for at risk youth.
- To travel abroad.
- To become fluent in two more languages.
- To leave this earth knowing that I made a difference in a positive way.
Any final thoughts?
I would like to thank CA Milson for giving me the opportunity to be heard. I truly hope that MY LIFE: POETIC LITERATURE is felt as a form of spoken word from me to the readers.
