About Me
Lifelong learner with an obsession for reading & collecting books. Growing up, I wrote often. A few items were published in Readers Digest, Chicken Soup for the Soul, etc. Began reading & writing more poetry as I grew into adulthood. Suddenly, the light came on and my soul vibrated with joy. Now on a quest to improve my skills. I take pleasure in learning & experimenting with new styles. I'm currently polishing a variety of poems to self publish a book for my children.
