Pia's Writing Journey

This website will be used to keep you informed of my latest author projects, both in progress and published and I will give you a few extracts of these projects for you to sample


Pia Horan-Gross

Pia has been writing short stories and poetry since childhood. She has been a profuse diary writer since adolescence and, after a very eventful life, is finally finding the time to devote herself to gather her prolific written work into published formats.

Her poetry, which she defines as “reality-based, spiritual poetry and art”, is written in prose style. It has been inspired by such poets as Basho, for his powerful simplicity, and T.S. Eliot, for his ground-breaking, poetic freedom of expression… continue reading

Editorial Reviews

Pia’s poems capture echoes from the past, reflections on the present and hope for the future.

The echoes from Pia’s life as she reflects on the harsh realities of life’ experiences and the disappointment of unfulfilled dreams can evoke our own echoes. But her poetry does more than dwell on life’s disappointments; it also reveals the healing power of beauty glimpsed in nature and in life-affirming relationships. She moves from darkness to light; from despair to discovery and to the assured hope of the eternal “Rose Garden”

I have found Pia’s “Spirituality” poetry to be consistent and life-giving and I commend the work highly.

Her poems are almost Psalm-ic or Proverbial in the biblical sense. They often present a ‘tension’ which needs resolution, which comes to finalization in the last stanza, bringing release and joy.

I consider this to be a valuable piece of work and I thank her for allowing me the privilege of critique.
