I am a single mother of two grown children. I have been writing poetry for over 40 years, and I am always learning something new. I write in a variety of different styles, but am obsessed with rhyme. I enjoy writing, and I find it almost as necessary as breathing. I have published 5 books of poetry.

Background Information

The two people who most influenced me in my life were my paternal grandmother, who taught me thatinner silence is strength, and my friend Sandra, a fellow writer whoencouraged me to paint in my "writer's block" periods.


My first published poem appeared in Spear Magazine when I was 9 years old. My work has been published in Sad Dances in a Field of White, various issues of Tower Poetry Magazine, Simcoe Review, Dico, Bantu and Poetry Canada. My first chapbook, Friends, was self-published in 1981. My book, I Write, was published by Terebi Publications in 1988. Two chapbooks, Penned From The Heart (1995), and Victory Won (1996), were published by a church in Toronto. My book, Under Construction, was published in 2005 under my own publishing name, MariahBooks, Tattered Daisies was published by PublishAmerica in 2005.

Additional Information

One of my poems has been accepted for publication by Marine Life Magazine (now Prose-n-Poetry), where that poem, "A Walk Along The Beach", won a monthly poetry contest.
As well as poetry, I have written and published an inspirational book for single mothers entitled, Dear Single Mothers, and with the aid of the church I attended, put together a homeschooling curriculum. My reproducible workbook, Back To Basic Writing: Grades 1-3, was self-published in 2001.
I am presently having illustrations done for a poetry book for children.
