I have been writing poetry since I was 12. I found it to be a constant soothing release from the angst of my earlier years. I would even stay in at lunch breaks to write.
I had my first poem published in a small poetry magazine called Oak Magazine. I was 20 and was taking an art class at the time. I wrote a poem on the back of the art and it got discovered by my teacher. A lady in the class read it and sent it to her friend a publisher.
I’ve written hundreds of poems over the years. Poetry is my outlet into myself and my surroundings.
Right now I’m in a very loving relationship with my boyfriend whom is a muse for the lighter and happier poems about love.
I love animals! I have devoted 20 something years to different animal shelters volunteering primarily with cats. Right now I’m taking a break.
