It is my pleasure to welcome NATALIE DUCEY to my website!



Thanks so much for joining me today on this fifth stop of the “Spotlight” tour.

Another big cheers to all!

I love creating things. A passion I discovered later in life and embraced without self-imposed judgement. Perhaps it’s because I chose to live more in the present, detached from the fear of exploiting time.  We tend to be our worst critics sometimes.

This passion fuels my soul. There is so much beauty in the process.

I love creating promotional pieces for my poetry. I study digital design and continue to learn new techniques and tips every day. For my promotional pieces, I select a line or verse from each poem and present it in a frame so it looks much like the book cover and offers a glimpse of the poem’s message.

Below are promotional pieces for The Heart’s Journey Home. This verse is from the poem titled – Surrender.


This verse is from the poem titled – Memories Linger.


Many of you know I recently published my second book of poetry, The Heart’s Lullaby.

These are promotional pieces for The Heart’s Lullaby. This verse is from the poem titled – Confessions of the Heart.


This verse is from the poem titled – Splendid Years.


It’s a joy to create these images and a privilege to share them with you today.

In celebration of my “Spotlight” tour, I’m delighted to say The Heart’s Lullaby is currently available for .99 cents!

About Shirley Harris-Slaughter

I love old buildings and history. That's why I ended up writing about the history that surrounded me all of my life - "Our Lady of Victory, the Saga of an African-American Catholic Community." Plus our church had closed and the school is torn down, so I felt it was imperative that we preserve the history or it would be lost forever.

    I am in awe of your words and graphics, Natalie. I only wish your piece by piece puzzles were available to the UK, as they too are so beautiful. Congratulations! I love both THE HEART’S JOURNEY HOME and THE HEART’S LULLABY … both fantastic books. 🙂

    • Thank you, Harmony! I love seeing you at all the stops, and I’m delighted to receive such wonderful reviews. Thank you!
      Nicole and I are trying to figure out a way to ship the Puzzles to the UK without it costing a small fortune. In some cases the shipping costs are higher than the product! Just crazy. We hope to figure something out soon. Your words are encouraging for sure. Cheers! 🙂

    Always such beautiful words, Natalie! Poetry can express thoughts in a way other forms of communication can’t. Splendid Years” really touched me today–thank you!
    Thanks for hosting, Shirley:)

      So true D.L. I’m not a big fan of poetry but sometimes it touches me the right way and I have to respond. Good job Natalie!

    • That’s wonderful to hear, D.L.! Thank you. 🙂
      I love poetry for both its simplicity and complexity. Some poems I read just leave me speechless, and they stay with me for sometime. Those are the gems for sure. Wishing you a beautiful day!
