About the Author

Nina Palmer's childhood home was nestled in Matilija Canyon, a remote area outside of Ojai, CA. A secluded home that granted a unique and enchanted place to grow up. It is no wonder that her work is filled with its imagery. Her earliest writings of poetry began as early as elementary school. It is a realized talent that has remained throughout her life. She began writing poetry as a means to cope with verbal and emotional abuse endured at home. Even after leaving home toxic relationships remained, as one tends to seek what is familiar. In her mid twenties she became aware of the abusive nature of most of the relationships in her life. That awareness enabled her to make a dramatic change. The toxic relationships she once had are now in the past, but such relationships can leave us with scar. Through much introspection and diligent expression through writing, many of the hard feelings that come from the end of these relationships, have been made into beautiful poetry. Through The Trees presents the collective work of a lifetime of heartache and healing. For more information on this author, visit
