Background Information

Naomi U'lulani Ho'omalu is a long time resident of the celebarated southern town of Selma, Alabama. She grew up in a time of upheaval and distrust among the races. What is more true, is the distrust that was cultivated among people of color to create division and strife within. She learned to escape those barriers by entering the literary world where barriers were of little importance. Inside the world of poetry or short story, one could become the hero or heroine and no one on the written page ever dared to care if you were tall or short, big or small, black or white, or even if you were, ... whatever you were! Naomi began writing, and most of all reading, when she learned that she could be what ever she wanted in life, in her stories. She learned that she could be the heroine or the villian. She learned that in the world of stories she could be herself and express her creativity in ways that she never could in her world of distrust, and aloneness. Naomi began writing in grade school and continued her love of literature and the arts well into her college years. She used her life experiences and her travel to forge instruments of communication- poetry and stories. Writing provided an avenue of release from her isolations and allowed her the freedom to share her creative side. Naomi was a loner for much of her life and is very much a private person. She loves people and took on a very traditional role as a professional nurse when she graduated from high school. She never lost her love for writing and continued to write through out her college years and even into married life. She never shared her work, keeping it private, but writing and the love for it never was far from her. She realized she had a real flare for writing and story telling when she and her ex-husband had their first child. By the time the second came child had come along she was certain that she had a flare for telling stories and making them live. She is currently involved with a Children's Theater known locally as the Ambassador's Playhouse. She helped a group of local leaders develop the group and is very active in helping to produce the works of the group. What is unique about this group is that the pieces produced are based on "life" themes that are written, directed and produced entirely by the children. So who is she really, and what is she really like? She is a mother of four, active with the children's and youth ministries in her local community and its literary circles, a healthcare professional, as well as a writer of short stories and poems. She is still a believer that you can do anything you put your mind to, and that barriers never stop anyone.
