about me

 

“I have dreamed in my life, dreams that have stayed with me ever after, and changed my ideas; they have gone through and through me, like wine through water, and altered the color of my mind”

-Emily Bronte

Writing has always been my home place. My medicine. My hobby. My second skin. My escape. My mouthpiece. My joy. If I were to be asked how to describe my writing, more specifically my poetry, I would best describe it as Edgar Allan Poe having a tea party with the Bronte sisters.

I, like most writers am driven by emotion. It changes daily and inspiration often comes at the most inconvenient times. I can be inspired by first hand experiences in my life, or by a book I’ve read, to current events, or even a television show or movie I’ve seen or maybe even that father and son riding in that beat up pick up truck in front of me.

My poetry and prose, that I often compliment with my photography as well as music, offers those same creative sides of me that I treasure. Much of my inspiration is lent to me by way of nature.

The idealism of Thoreau with his minimalist thoughts feeds my eye and my soul. I easily find the beauty in the simple things life offers and sometimes forgotten.

With the publication of two novels, a novella and my first book of poems, my dream has been set to motion and I hope to continue bringing more stories and visions to life. Thank you for visiting my little space in this vast ocean we call life. As I continue to evolve and grow, so shall my words. I look forward to your company on my journey and I truly hope you enjo

 

“sometimes I’m terrified of my heart; of its constant hunger for whatever it wants.

the way it starts and stops”

-Edgar Allan Poe

  1. Yes just a writing meme I use occasionally. Thanks for reading and glad you liked it! And yes, I often use images to inspire my words and in using same image I feel it only intensifies the words
