Book Blurb of Different Sides of the Same Coin:

Different Sides of the Same Coin is a modern and sassy collage of poetry as experienced from the Black female perspective of 2 sisters and authors. This timeless collection of poems is refreshing and unique. Different Sides of the Same Coin is a soul searing and heartwarming work of new age black voice and spoken word.

This adaptation highlights the human experience of life, love, loss, parting and sorrow. Timeless wording, honestly written with a little of the unexpected. Black Expression has never been more vibrant, relevant and real. This work is an interesting twist on Harlem Renaissance revisited as it collides with 2019 social struggles and conditions of our current time. In no short order we are reminded of why written and spoken word is so vital to the sustenance of African American Literature.

Book Blurb of Mirrored Images:

Two sisters and authors are back with their follow-up sequel Mirrored Images. This is where their story in Different Sides of the Same Coin left off. In this poetic adaptation Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace attempt to navigate the pouring rains of life conditions as they tell their tale in poetic contemporary modern verse reflecting on present day social and political events facing the Black community. In this heartrending collection of poems, the sisters further deal with life as it unfolds as they try to arrive to a collective center of peace and understanding. Mirrored Images is a written meditation about people’s sometimes darker actions and motives.

We journey with these ladies as they honestly tackle racism, frayed familial dynamics and embracing a sister bond that has proven to be impenetrable. This time around Blues is the preferred backdrop of their gripping tale. Prepare to be wowed beyond expectation as these writings and poems deliver more of everything you loved in book one while remaining authentically true to their soulful and riveting narrative as Black women.

Where their first collection of Black Expression revisited Harlem Renaissance and cashed with 2018-2019 social unrest. In Mirrored Images they rip the bandages off human life experience and force you to see what most are happier pretending just does not exist at all. Spoken word is back and these literary writers take social conflict and unrest to brand-new unchartered heights.

About the Authors:

Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace
Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace


Chyrel J. Jackson and Lyris D. Wallace are avid lovers, readers and writers of African American Literature. They grew up in a Southern Suburb of Chicago, IL. Country Club Hills. As young girls they read Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, and Judy Blume novels. College was the real scholastic awakening introducing these two Literary Enthusiasts to the Literary works of their great ancestors: James Baldwin, Toni Morrison, Maya Angelou and others. These writers influenced Chyrel and Lyris so much. It only makes sense that they would now be writing in the Spirit of these ancestors.

Giving a voice to social issues that plague our modern time. Their latest self-published works are books of poetry: Mirrored Images and Different Sides of the Same Coin. Both Books mirror messaging “no pun intended.” Ranging from a host of life topics: relationships, frayed familial dynamics, juggling life, single parenting, racism, etc. Some have said, our books are reminiscent of Harlem Renaissance revisited. Our anthologies of poems pair current social and living conditions with poetic verse. In this volume the sometimes-darker sides and motives of human nature are also addressed.

Where their first collection of poems Different Sides of the Same Coin revisited Harlem Renaissance and collided with
2019 social unrest, Mirrored Images rips off the bandages of human life experience. It forces one to see what most are
happier pretending just does not exist at all. Broken, hurt people, hurt others. Spoken word is back and these literary
writers take social justice and unrest to brand-new unchartered heights.
Writing allowed Chyrel and Lyris to find their voice. Surviving a deadly pandemic, navigating life’s rough waters, and
continuing to stay true to themselves birthed their latest book Mirrored Images.
Can magic be recreated for a second time? The sisters believe that it can. We write about what we know. Our experiences
as black women are what we know well. Our writing is lensed from that intrinsically authentic experience.

Thank you all for reading and remember:

Live. Love. Laugh.
