Born and raised in a small town by band director/principal parents i grew up immersed in books and music. a lover of the melodramatic, prose and poetry. i wrote alot as a kid. I wrote stories with vivid imagery of loss, happiness, joy and deep hurt. Interestingly, some of my stories came to be in my later and adult life. Like a revelation of sorts. Having been in difficult situations and experiencing loss feeds my passion to write, express and transcend.
