Local Detroit Renaissance Woman
Writes Passionately About the City She Loves
Crystal Reign Brock: The Flower That Grew From Concrete


March 29, 2013, Detroit, MI- Writer, actress, playwright and poet, Crystal Reign Brock is desperately trying to save Detroit's cultural landscape. She's produced a plethora of original works ladened with elegance, intelligence and rare creative quality. She's studied the masters of literature and art, the evidence of that exposure obvious in the quality of what she produces. She's taken all that she knows and all that she is to local community theater groups and acting studios introducing students to a superior level of the humanities and all the while, she's been releasing the greatest series of literature of her own.

Considerations of Life, her inaugural collection of verses is an honest and vulnerable collection of poetic truths that speaks very relatable tales of pain, heartache, disappointments, and expresses her dire need for and love affair with art. Its overwhelming desperation to create strikes a chord with its reader as Brock achingly communicates the need for art not to dissipate with the cavalier flair of a sinking city.

Her current work, Listening Between the Lines is a refreshing poetic ode to Detroit, past and present with an overwhelming inspirational tone for its future. A necessary outcry for the much needed loyalty and passion Detroit deserves, Listening Between the Lines uses the character D'City to channel the heart and soul of what Detroit has always been; strong and rich with an invaluable artistic heritage. Brock's cultural contributions to Detroit's creative community feel singular in efforts as a soloist delivering an awe-inspiring song, inciting movement and emotion to the masses with only one voice. The power of what she delivers is only matched by the need for it to be delivered and she continues to do it with every word she speaks and verse she writes. Currently available on Amazon.com Listening Between the Lines is a gratifying collection of verses that will speak volumes of what Detroit was, is, has been and will be. It is a must read for its residents and especially its young people as well as the national general public at large. Crystal Reign Brock 'reigns' as a stalwart representative of the fiber of a once thriving city that deserves to thrive again.
