The Inner Shell is a book of free verse poetry that coincides with Humming and Singing the Gospel. Each poem is about a time in Minnie Lou’s life. In this book of free verse poetry, Minnie Lou is still Humming and Singing the Gospel but this time it is through her free verse poetry. She invites each reader inside the Shell, where she once dwelled and at the end Minnie Lou is coming out of the Inner Shell with her reader. Again, Minnie Lou finds her Spirit through her writing!
Minnie Lou graduated from Valdosta State University. She received two B.A. degrees and a minor in Creative Writing. She received her Masters in Educational Assessment and Evaluation from American Intercontinental University. She is presently working on her P.H.D. in Education in Teaching and Learning. She plans to work at a college in the near future.
