“As someone who does not read a lot of poetry, I found Gemma’s poems very relatable, some of which touched me deeply & felt could have been written just for me”
- Dr. Jeffrey Albert, BDS, FICOI, Dental Surgeon, Sydney Australia

“Gemma’s poems can be summed up in one word, honestly. She lays her soul bare. Darling Aleena is an excellent example. It tells of struggles through pain, loneliness and abandonment with feeling of depression being replaced by hope for a brighter future. I am not a poet by any stretch but Gemma’s poetry is not for poets. They are for anyone who has struggled through life and needs to know there is hope for a better future”.
- Fred L. Isom, Retire US Navy, USA

“I know Gemma since the early 90’s as part of our Publishing Production Team. At first she does not know a thing or two about publishing. She’s fast learner and have mastered the system within days, making our project easier to print and publish. Fast forward to now, I am quite happy that she herself is publishing her own coffee table book. Her book is quite a treasure of pleasant and inspiring poetry complementing it with beautiful images, full of life and vibrant colours. Gemma Escolano is a true artist!!!”.
- Lito C. Uyan, Art Director, Graphic Designer, Photographer, Manila, Philippines.
