As an established poet, author, blogger, translator and freelance journalist, she continues to demonstrate why she is successful as a modern-day Renaissance woman, whose charm, wit and technology skills, dazzles those around her. Her poetry pierces the coldest of hearts, with majestic imagery of her spiritual message. Her mastery of both the English language and the Internet sets a high standard, that people (like me) strive towards. About two years ago, I was fortunate to find such a talented and generous friend in Canada, across the northern border of my homeland. During this time, we have exchanged ideas and a love of poetry; and I am a better person because of this kindred spirit. Anyone, fortunate to be in a project with her, will be blessed; I know, for I have experienced it myself - and hope to do so again, many years from now." — Joseph Breunig, Sr Programmer/Analyst, C&S Wholesale Grocers, worked with Cendrine at Examiner.com "Cendrine Marrouat is not only a highly inspirational poet, but also does an AMAZING job as a freelance writer (e.g. for Examiner.com) supporting independent artists.
