Author and poet Teresa Vinson launches new book

Teresa Vinson releases new poetry book
SALISBURY — Spoken word book author and poet Teresa Vinson has launched her first book, “Rhyme Tymes In The Key Of Life.”
“Rhyme Tymes” sets its main focus on providing thought provoking words for the audience to ponder and think about throughout their day. Readers will likely find a particular interest in the historical representations and current events created through poetry. The book’s cover art was created by the author herself and “Rhyme Tymes In The Key Of Life” is being released by the author through Kindle Direct Publishing.
Vinson holds a bachelor of arts degree in criminal justice. This helped shaped the creation of the book by igniting a passion for writing and spoken word delivery of her work.
When asked about why she wrote the book, Vinson said, “The book was written because each time I did a poem and someone wanted a copy, I didn’t have it available.”
Vinson hopes that the book will inspire others to get their poems and books out of their heads and hearts onto paper; to motivate people to try and make the world a better place; and to bring awareness and wake people up regarding life.
