JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - June 28, 2013 - PRLog -- A Quick Look to an Insane Mind: A collection of poems and prose, depicting a view of the world from the psychologically disturbed, has just been released by Leo Publishing, LLC. This fascinating—sometimes humorous, sometimes frightening—look into life and death as seen through the eyes of the criminally insane is the creative work of E. N. De Choudens. The writing is powerful; the images created are disturbing, highlighting the author’s evocative use of the English language. But, this is not always how it has been for De Choudens.  

Efrain Nadal, writing under the name of E. N. De Choudens, is a native of Puerto Rico, and Spanish is his primary language. De Choudens arrived to the United States and set about to master the language of his new home. Efrain not only mastered English but also harnessed the power of the written word to begin writing poetry. His early works received quick notice, with several of his poems A Cold Beer, My Halloween Night, and He is waiting for me having been published in journals and periodicals. A Quick Look to an Insane Mind is his first full length book of verse. De Choudens, now living in Maryland, evokes the spirit of fellow Maryland poet and author Edgar Alan Poe. This alone would be an accomplishment for anyone, but to have to conquer the nuances and the discipline of a new language at the same time makes Efrain’s triumph even more significant.

De Choudens says, “When I began to write, my English was terrible . . . I needed a little help to correct my grammatical errors and to correct the loss of meaning during translation.”  The author goes on to thank all those who helped him in his budding writing career and his transition from writing in Spanish to writing in English, and states, “. . . . I do not personally know all the people who helped me. I met all of them via Internet for their interest in the literary world. This is an example in how the arts can bring together a few strangers and share some common interest.”

When not writing, E. N. De Choudens enjoys fishing, scuba diving, and other outdoor activities. He studied marine biology in Puerto Rico and then creative writing here in America. A husband and a father of two, De Choudens proves that no obstacle will block the path of a talented and dedicated individual. E. N. De Choudens has conquered the English language and is now setting his sights on conquering the world of dark poetry. Look for his book A Quick Look to an Insane Mind. ISBN: 978-0-9834735-8-9
