'Through the Eyes of Innocence', cover-image exclusively photographed by upcoming, creative photographer, Miss Carson Doan, is a collection of imaginative short stories for children as well the young at heart who still wish to touch the child dwelling inside each of us. There is nothing more innocent than a child and the way they look at the world with a curious mind filled to the brim with exciting adventure, whimsical imagination, and endless wonder. A child truly does look at the world in their own way, and within a special time that is all their own. This unique collection contains intricately woven tales stemming from Ms. Blackwood's imagination, as well based in part on her own childhood growing up in the 1950s on her paternal grandfather's farm in rural Ontario, Canada.

"I think it's both soothing and healthy to remember one's childhood, the countless memories they provide, the fun, the escapades and wonder they continue to lend," says Rusty. "Often times our childhood helps to shape who we become as adults -- even how we perceive the world around us. Children are truly amazing, their imagination filled with wonderment untold. They may look at the world through innocent eyes, but the knowledge found within their soul is nothing short of exceptional, and never ceases to prove the well used phrase, out of the mouths of babes ; I feel that adage should also include the mind, as well.

Rusty Blackwood has written an eclectic array of Contemporary and Traditional poetry, publishing her first collection in October of 2009 entitled, ‘Feelings: A Rhythmic Journey in Thought’. This was followed in April of 2010 by a collection of assorted short stories for children as well the young at heart entitled, ‘Young Minds’.

Her first venture into the competitive world of main-stream fiction was a long time in the making, but was finally realized in early October 2010 with the release of her debut romance novel, ‘Passion in Paris: Connections to the Past’, the first of two in the ongoing romance/drama. The second part, a romance novel entitled, ‘Passion in Paris: Directions of the Heart’ was released in May 2011 and will be followed by the intriguing drama, ‘Net of Lies’.
