Author Rusty Blackwood Releases New Children's Book, 'Through The Eyes Of Innocence'

Canadian Author Rusty Blackwood's new book, 'Through The Eyes Of Innocence' is now available. The new children's book is a collection of short stories for the young and the young at heart

Acclaimed Canadian author Rusty Blackwood, author of the 'Passion In Paris' series, has announced the release of 'Through The Eyes Of Innocence'. The new children's book is a collection of short stories based on her experiences growing up in rural Ontario, Canada.

"I wrote this newly revised book," stated Ms. Blackwood, "based in part on the previously released 'Young Minds' because I not only like to stay in touch with my inner child, which I feel everyone should do as it would be a shame to lose touch with that whimsical time and the memories it gave us, but also for my grandchildren to have a chance to experience through word some of the memories I share within these stories. It is chance to know the child I once was and that is important to me. I remember sharing special times with my paternal grandfather with whom I lived with and I can still feel him near me through the memories he provided. I hope my own grandchildren can experience these same things."

'Through the Eyes of Innocence' 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 believe readers will enjoy this book," continued Ms. Blackwood, "because a child sees the world through innocent, inquisitive eyes, always ready to absorb new realms of the imagination. Whimsical, descriptive stories allow their imagination to be free within the pages they read and to enjoy the experiences of other children which they will read about. I also feel those who are still young at heart will enjoy this book because it provides a window in time to their own childhood, possibly memories of their own special happenings. Hopefully those memories remind them of a wonderful time, laughter, and joy. Children are free of serious demand, especially the demand that comes with adulthood where time is never long enough, and playtime gives way to serious commitment to whatever that may be."

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’.
