Becoming a published writer, I wanted to convey stories to the world like the writers who have inspired me most...

Background Information


I have been a writer all my life. It has been a hidden passion that time and obligation fails to suppress. Like all true forms of arts, it provides a means to share a small piece of your soul with strangers exposing intimate vulnerable parts of your psyche. Even your closest friends are, in fact, strangers to select attributes of the pieces that constitute your whole. Therefore the decision to become a published writer did not come easy for me.
                I have endured a lifetime of inspiration, desire, hope, struggle, triumph, disillusion, et cetera. Yet, I am aware that all my pain and passion are shared by my vast human family. In the same manner that a songstress, or a superbly, brilliant song writer conveys their human frailty and unimaginable strength through their art: a writer that appreciates the delicacy of this powerful art form does the same.    
I am forty-three. My love of writing began as a young child. In 3rd grade we had to recite a poem. I chose Invictus.  The rhyme and rhythm was appealing, but the words spoke directly to my soul. In times of challenge and fear I recited my motto. It gave me motivation to defy whatever obstacle stood in my way.
When I decided to become a published writer, I wanted to convey stories to the world like the writers who have inspired me most have conveyed their inner thoughts, exposing private pieces of their intimate soul. My debut literary work, The Unfettered Human Soul is my attempt to share a small piece of my soul with my human family.
I am currently working on my second book. I hope to make writing my sole profession.
Birth Place
Fort Wayne, IN U.S.A.

Thanks to those that have bought the book. I look forward to your reviews.

The Unfettered Human Soul
This book challenges the long held assumptions about the daily lives of slaves as it tells the story of four generations of women shackled by the bonds of slavery. Issa is snatched away from her African home and sent to America afraid and alone, but inspired by the desire to keep the memory of her destroyed village alive. She sees her apparent fortune dissipate into disappointment as her longtime relationship with her masterís son fails to deliver the security necessary to keep her promise to carry on the story of her people. Defeat is transformed into hope with the unlikely birth of her youngest child, Sophia. Sophia has the makings of an exceptional storyteller and an interest in knowledge that gives life to Issaís never abandoned promise. Sophia manages to keep the story of her people alive and thriving despite the disinterest of her only child, Betty. Though Betty lacks interest in the tradition, her daughter Katie has an innate passion for carrying the history of her people into future generations. Katie struggles to keep her African heritage alive as she endures the brutality of enslavement in America. As fate would have it, she will receive the means to realize Issaís promise to her people and village.

The blog is something new for me. I will be posting poems and short stories. Some old some new, all new to the public.
