Poetry is like painting a poet's work is never done.

Background Information

 I grew up with the ocean breeze in a small town on the East Coast.  I am the daughter of a musician and I used to sing with my father, which gave me a love for music and the words.  Poetry has always been a passion of mine but I never applied myself to writing until I returned to college.  I started putting my feelings down and sharing with my friends and family.  Soon the words started flowing. My style of writing is considered a form of lyrical poetry that crosses between polyrhythmic poetry and free verse, a form of cadanced prose.  I enjoy free verse, open form, prose and nontraditional rhyming poetry.  I am happily married, a mother of two, and a grandmother of five.  I write my poetry from my friends and family's lives as well as my own life.  Sometimes I will see something that makes me want to write a poem.  I write as a hobby and try to avoid logic, leaving the mind to think and imagine in a lot of my writing.  It is my escape from my structured life.

Birth Place

Additional Information

Well, it has been a while since I let everyone know what I am up to. So here is the update. I put my last publication on hold to take a sabatical. During my sabatical I have worked on my book revisions, worked on my book "The Keeper of Dreams", "Magical Fairy Dust", "Desires of the Heart", "Eternal Longing", and a book I am writing with a friend "Castle Sanctuary" as well as editing a book for a friend "The Lonely Poet". I am also going to school full time as a graduate student working on three masters degrees.
