“Learnt, inspired, heartfelt. This is a charming and nicely written philosophical collection.” – Lulu Enterprises, Inc (USA).
THINKING OUT LOUD is a collection of articles that elicits reflection on universal themes we think about, but seldom express – such as love, friendship, trust, heartbreak, navigating careers, celebrating milestones, family and the holidays. The 4th chapter helps us put the past year into perspective and chart a way forward for the new year. Purchase your copy today on Amazon!
“This short collection reflects the lives of individuals and how common traits are shared amongst strangers from various backgrounds. It provides thoughts that many of us have daily, but may have repressed emotions and fearful to say what needs to be said to one another.
The concept is beautifully put and touches on life’s bountiful choices that as adolescents we may ignore and as adulthood approaches, we scramble to organize realizing time is passing quickly. The book describes special moments we share with family, friends and loved ones close to our hearts as it explains the value of time and why waiting may have consequences.
The author describes her journey of life eloquently, sharing great memories with friends and how her father and mother’s love was always unconditional when she needed a laugh or a shoulder, regardless of circumstance – no critique. Their encouragement her inspiration. I’d say these articles touched me dearly and encouraged me to reflect on my own life’s journey, hidden fears of what is to come and heal what has passed. I’d recommend this collection to anyone wanting inspiration and a smile!”

“Many take the past with us wherever we go, much like a security blanket to keep us warm and safe. We don’t want to let go, but the truth is: We don’t need it where we are going.” – How To Find Yourself & Claim What’s Yours – The Cold Harsh Truths
HOW TO FIND YOURSELF & CLAIM WHAT’S YOURS takes a look inside the mind of a writer who for many years was trapped in a world where she had lost her passion for her first love – writing which gradually eroded her zeal for life. Within these 12 chapters, Carolyn bares her soul retelling the familiar story over a 6-year period many encounter along their life’s journey, but seldom share. She recalls fleeting moments of euphoria as she struggled to find a career and environment to match her skills, persona and impact for the world – often stifling her creativity to fit a static and at times mundane and rigid corporate world.
Part I of the book speaks of the journey to becoming a published writer, author and transition to her former profession of Communications. Part II paints the story of working in an industry she loved, finding her moment of truth hosting a company event and obeying the call to her true life purpose – all the while coping with the anguish of the reversal of health of a parent who was her rock and catalyst to write books.
The book can be used as a guide to overcoming debilitating feelings of unfulfillment in a career, finding your catharsis and healing to eventually transition to a more fulfilling phase. It’s perfect for creatives, aspiring entrepreneurs, graduates, retirees, those seeking their true purpose, or a gentle reminder of fond memories and simple joys. The author’s goal is to update readers with her progress towards self-actualization, personal and financial freedom in Part III of a 2nd edition.
How To Find Yourself & Claim What’s Yours is a book of hope and the perfect complement to her first (Thinking out Loud) – both intended to prepare readers to emotionally embrace their role in this life since the world wouldn’t be the same without our individual and collective contribution and unique expression of our gifts.
“Lyn Correia is an amazing, witty and charming author. Her writing style is simple and easy to follow. Her books are not overdramatized, they are lively.” – Amazon Reader Dai gives She Missed the Boat on Love 5 out of 5 stars.
SHE MISSED THE BOAT ON LOVE is a bunch of hella funny rhymes, yet very real universal experiences of pain that transcends genders, cultures and age groups. The intention is to heal hearts, gain a better understanding and appreciation of oneself and past relationships to build trust and find true love. Highly recommended for single, married and cohabiting couples.
“Carolyn is a true romantic so this is depicted in her cluster of poems. Some make you teary eyed, others take you down memory lane. All in all, they provide some heart-to-heart which is good from time to time. You tend to remember your growing up days.”
Believe it or not, our romantic lives and healing our hearts has a lot to do with how we carry out our daily lives – including living our TRUE LIFE PURPOSE with PASSION. It’s more than finding a career we love, but immersing ourselves in the hurt and pain of our past to discover what & who rings true for us.
