By Dianalee Velie
In Soul Proprietorship: Women in Search of Their Souls, Dianalee Velie seeks - and finds proprietorship of the soul - through a wonderful collection of character-driven short stories, with an accent on magical realism. Sensations Magazine initially published five of the 24 stories in this new collection, over a period of several years. It's always a pleasure to see work that debuted in our publication later achieve additional exposure through book publication, and we are confident new readers will enjoy the works as we initially did. Dianalee Velie has published several poetry collections and seen her plays produced off-Broadway. This short story collection adds to her repetoire as a writer of wide range and discipline - worthy of reading, studying, and experiencing."

In her wonderful new collection, Soul Proprietorship, Dianalee Velie presents us with a series of stories about the places and events in life that our souls attend, memories that "...await us in every closet." Velie writes of "...nondenominational angels," "spunky dogs", and then wonders how one can find their soul when life revolves around everyone else. Join her "jumping into the leaves... pushing off in a snow saucer." Soulmate with her as she relates tragic tales on abortion, death and rape. Attend her daughter's "Perfect 10" marriage. Ah, Dianalee...It's all here.
