LINKS & BIOS:
I am a painter of words
I soak my life with poetry and rhythmic verses
My life is that of a colorful and adventurous canvas
I live poetry
I am poetry
From an early age I knew I had the gift of writing poetry. I started writing in journals at about age 11. By the time I was 15 years old, I knew I wanted to publish a book of poetry. I even picked out a title and wrote it across one of my many notebooks.
Over 10 years later after my life had been a bit derailed, I finally made my dream of seeing my writing in print happen. I also kept the title I wrote on my notebook years before, A Place with No Name.
A Place with No Name consists of a lot of poetry I wrote in my high school years, some were even written from when I was only 12 years old. Although some or most of what I had written could have been edited, changed or totally rewritten, I left them the way I wrote them. It didn’t feel right to change something I had crafted years before. Other poems were from what was happening at the time when I was putting the book together.
I like to think my poetry has grown since then. My next book I’m hoping, will be finished by the end of this year. You can purchase “A Place with No Name” at Amazon.com, Barnes and Nobles, Borders or Buybooksontheweb.com.
