Sylvia M Dallas Performance Poet, Photographer, Author, Publisher I was born June 9, 1965. On June 10, 1975 I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour and also the time I discovered my gift of writing. I published my first book under the pseudonyms Strata (Moods and Emotions) and then Gina Rey Forest I published several books later on. In 2007 I declared to God that I would not perform on stage again, or write another poem unless it glorified His Name. I was tested right away. For years I was an advocate for performing poets to get paid, as many promoters took advantage of us by using the age old excuse of not even giving us a stipend "this will give you exposure." As soon as I had made that declaration, I started receiving offers to perform my previous style of sensuous poetry for pay. I refused them all. Four years later I made a total re-commitment to God, promising to be obedient to His Word and the promptings of His Holy Spirit. At midnight on December 31, 2013 I completed the manuscript of my first book of poetry since that commitment called THE RIGHT KIND OF INTIMACY - For God Has Me. In March as I was preparing to publish, and during a time of prayer, I was asked by the Lord if I would hold off publishing that book and instead publish another that He would place on my heart. I agreed. AND THE PRISONERS HEARD THEM - Your Life of Praise Can Bring Freedom To Others was launched in May 2014. And now I am happy to present to you THE RIGHT KIND OF INTIMACY - For God has me.
