Hi, I'm Linda. The host of the Poetry Ponderings Podcast.

Thank you so much for being here.

I am excited to collaborate with writers around the globe in order to highlight their creativity and passion for poetry, prose, and verse.

The intention of the podcast is to provide a platform for published and unpublished writers in which interpretation, inspiration, and imagination can flourish. The pieces are vocalised by the writer and absorbed by the listeners in its raw, real and true form. The poem itself is left alone, rather than undergoing extensive analysis paralysis (there are plenty of other forums on the internet for that!). In my opinion, poetry has heavy stigmas attached and I aim to assist in unifying ourselves with our own creativity and flow.

Please join me on this journey and I do hope you thoroughly enjoy listening as much as I do.

Love Linda xx

16th episode time...


Author Stone, aka Angela Marshall, Augusta native is a positive words powerhouse that utilizes her personal life experiences of struggle, strength, and success to captivate audiences and readers abroad. She speaks with positive purpose and passion to motivate others while encouraging them through challenges. Growing up altruistic with lighter skin in an African American family and environment during the 1970’s, afforded her a view point advantage of diversity, different and determination. She attended Monte Sano Elementary, Davidson Fine Arts, Lucy C. Laney and Hephzibah High School. Stone is also a community supporter.

In March 2016, Stone resigned from her 20year corporate employment to allow the purpose that has pursued her throughout every level of her life, to be unmasked, unchained and untamed. Although choices in life led her down a different career path temporarily, she knew she was born to speak struggles to strength and impact lives through words. She is CEO and a Creative Writing Consultant for In Other Words by Stone, located in Augusta, Ga. She is also a contributing Columnists and Poet for the website.

Author Stone seeks to inspire others through her words, work and wisdom. She is a mother of 2 children that often times in her past, struggled through a lavish but lacking lifestyle with her ex-husband, a former NFL player. That chapter in her life would prove pivotal to her “wise words woman” nickname and also for her impending autobiography, “Reality to Rags to Riches; The Story and Life of an Ex NFL Wife.”

Her first book was published on November 25th, 2016. It is a compilation of short stories, poetry and essays titled” Lust, Lessons, Love and Life.” It chronicles her choices, consequences and growth. Author Stone has chosen the platform, The Story and Life of an Ex-NFL Wife; Reality to Rags to Riches. She talks about the scores that didn't count and making positive plays everyday. Her goal is to share her truth to the world for empowerment to enlighten, encourage and evolve others to choose living life which values people versus living a lie in a lifestyle that values things.

Thanks, as always, for listening xx
