Emotives Volume Two.png

All Janelle wants and hopes for is a reaction, connection, and for the reader to relate to her work.

Disarming, warm and always accessible, Janelle Barker’s poems make ordinary experiences glow.

Everything that suffuses her emotive expression is here: love, compassion, insight, lyrical precision and the clear, simple honesty that reveals how life can turn in a moment. Musing on undercurrents and connections between family, nature, memory, motherhood and the world of circumstantial events that have created our culture and our fears. The poems in this aspiring collection begin on the surface and then delve us, gracefully effortlessly, to a far more thought-provoking place. Grounded in experiences and perceptions, with all human mysteries and consolations, they resonate with a passionate, sensuous honesty that only a new Indie Author can expressly create.

“A poet worthy of the graduation to professional with words of prose that move and aspire emotions from the heart with simplistic beauty and openness…five stars.” Kenneth, IndieBooks Reviewer


Emotives is the first title by Janelle Barker to be released through Shawline Publishing Group.

Janelle is a mother and wife who loves the closeness of family. A private person, at times, social with people that are close to me. City girl relocated to the country to find her fit. When she is not writing, you will find her relaxing in the outdoors; it may be camping or travelling to different locations, exploring our beautiful country or watching good crime/ action movies.
