Poetry in Motion II
Writing is my passion, helping others through my writing my mission
A Bit About Me
I started writing at a very young age – 10 years old to be exact, just for fun. However, that love of writing was never nurtured, and I lost the zeal for creativity. Growing up life took its toll on me like any typical teen to young adult. From life’s pain, I discovered writing again.
My first attempt at writing a novel was a novel disaster. The title of the book was so disastrous, I can’t even remember the name. I had this writing partner, and we were writing the book together. She was the one that was well versed in this whole book thing. I depended on her to help me navigate the publishing world. I had no clue how to get published. Back then self-publishing was in its infancy. My partner quite frankly stabbed me in the back trashing me and my writing skills. We parted ways. I didn’t let that stop, but I was left to navigate all of this alone.
I finished the book and set out to self-publish. I was lost. I didn’t know where to start, but slowly I found my way. I wrote “So You Finished Your Masterpiece, Now What? A Guide to Self-publishing on a Budget” to help novice writers understand publishing and give them the nuggets to get started in the publishing world.
My publications are vast, and I continue to write and assist others by offering coaching services. I was a featured author in Surfacing an anthology dedicated to the survivors of Hurricane Katrina. I finished my first novel; From the Brink of Insanity Comes the Light in 2008. I published my 2nd novel, The Forgotten ~ A Love Story in 2012. My 3rd novel, Angel’s War the first novel in the series released in 2015. I have a poetry book “Some Love Some Pain Some Loss Some Gain” published in 2016.
Oh, and I’m an avid blogger. I write a blog spot called “The Whine/Wine Blog - Because every rant, rave or whine goes down better with a great glass of wine! This blog is part trending topics, part self-help, part positivity written with a whole lot of love.
I feel I can make an impact on society through my writing. I truly believe that writing is my passion and helping other’s through my writing is my mission. Let me take you on a journey with one of my novels or let me help you make your business pop on paper with powerful words!
