I am a mother to four teenage daughters they are my biggest fans! I began writing at a young age only to be told that I did not have any talent. So, I quit writing for many years. Then in 2005 I picked up the pen and paper and wrote a poem the first of many. My mother read it and dared me to enter a contest. Which I did and here I am today. My first book of poetry of some of my earlier writes will be out Jan. 15, 2007 which is hopefully a first of many! I also am working on a novel and a historical romance. I write to share my life experiences many of which are not so pleasant... in the hopes that others shall know that they are never alone. I write in many different styles of poetry but, love to write in rhyming couplets and write about many different of life's many aspects: love, hope, romance, sensual, inspirational, anger, joy, pain, sorrow...etc.
The main influences in my life have been life itself and the many different emotions and feelings one has on any given day. I admire the works of Emily Dickinson, Shakespeare, and Poe.
To write is to share ones inner self with the world...their very heart and soul.
