Home. A simple word; a loaded one. You can say it in a whisper; you can say it in a cry. Expressed in poetry and prose, in the voices of father and daughter, you can hear a visceral longing for an ideal place, a place never to be found again.
Imagine the shock, imagine the sadness when a daughter discovers her father’s work, the poetry he had never shared with anyone during the last two decades of his life. Six years after that moment of discovery, which happened in her childhood home while mourning for his passing, Uvi Poznansky presents a tender tribute: a collection of poems and prose, half of which is written by her, and half—by her father.

Uvi Poznansky is a bestselling, award-winning author, poet and artist. “I paint with my pen,” she says, “and write with my paintbrush.” Her romance boxed set, A Touch of Passion, is the 2016 WINNER of The Romance Reviews Readers’ Choice Awards.
Education and work:
Uvi earned her B. A. in Architecture and Town Planning from the Technion in Haifa, Israel and practiced with an innovative Architectural firm, taking a major part in the large-scale project, called Home for the Soldier.
Having moved to Troy, N.Y. with her husband and two children, Uvi received a Fellowship grant and a Teaching Assistantship from the Architecture department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. There, she guided teams in a variety of design projects and earned her M.A. in Architecture. Then, taking a sharp turn in her education, she earned her M.S. degree in Computer Science from the University of Michigan.
She worked first as an architect, and later as a software engineer, software team leader, software manager and a software consultant (with an emphasis on user interface for medical instruments devices.) All the while, she wrote and painted constantly, and exhibited in Israel and California. In addition, she taught art appreciation classes. Her versatile body of work includes bronze and ceramic sculptures, oil and watercolor paintings, charcoal, pen and pencil drawings, and mixed media.
Books and Genres:
Her two series won great acclaim. Still Life with Memories is a family saga series with touches of romance. It includes Apart From Love, My Own Voice, The White Piano, The Music of Us, and Dancing with Air. The David Chronicles is a historical fiction series. It includes Rise to Power, A Peek at Bathsheba, and The Edge of Revolt.
Her poetry book, Home, is in tribute to her father. Her collection of dark tales, Twisted, and her Historical Fiction book, A Favorite Son, are both new age, biblically inspired books. In addition, Uvi wrote and illustrated two children books, Jess and Wiggle and Now I Am Paper. For each one of these books, she created an animation video (find them on YouTube and on her Goodreads page.)
I do a fair amount of local signings. Mostly libraries and wineries. I’ve done a number of bookstore signings, but frankly, there is a LOT more competition for book buying in a book store than say in a winery, LOL. I have sold many, many more books at either book clubs or special venue events than in actual bookstores. It’s because I catch people by surprise at places like wineries – but in a bookstore they folks coming in usually already know what they want and they are going to get it, without being delayed by some author they never heard of. LOL. You can, however, contact your local B&N, find out who’s the head honch, and start schmoozing. In person is best, if possible. Then, normally, you bring your own copies of the books and they send you a check later. That’s the best way. Think outside the box – I’m going to be doing a signing at our local Wegmans (grocery store) – and I probably will sell a fair amount there, definitely more than at bookstores. Isn’t that crazy?? ;o)
Another good awards contest I skipped on my list I sent you is EPIC book awards (eBooks). The entry period is June 1 through July 15, so I didn’t look at it yet. But I’ve won 3 times through them, various years and categories. ;o) A good place to go!
