Life is a journey. From the Heart is a collection of poetry and art “from one heart that experiences emotional ups and downs, loves to make memories, makes mistakes, treasures the gift of time and learns and grows through every moment of the journey.” The author writes, “As you read through this book, my wish is that it will inspire you to never give up hope, continue to dream, take a risk, love and have faith so you can continue on your journey.”

“It was such a pleasure to work with a professional like Jill. As a first time author and self-publisher, I didn't have a great deal of knowledge, and Jill was amazing. She took the time to answer my questions and was very patient as I worked through the process. She captured every aspect of my vision in designing the interior and dust jacket. I recommend Jill to anyone and look forward to working with her again in the future!”

"I heartily recommend my cover designer, Jill Ronsley. She designed my book of poetry, Cat-House Sonnets, my postcards and my bookmarks, and I have been enormously pleased with the results of her work. Working with Jill has been a very enjoyable experience. Jill knows what she's doing. She is professional, meticulous and dedicated. She respects the author and the author's ideas and is capable of incorporating the good ones and gently discarding the bad ones. Best of all, she has a sense of humor, an unbelievably important asset. The entire experience of getting a manuscript into a publishable form has been fun and productive. I have learned a lot from Jill and recommend her and her work to any serious author."
