About

Currently, I’m an English major studying at Community College of Rhode Island. I am also the proud mother of three beautiful children, one of whom is Autistic.

I began writing poetry when I was just twelve years old. You may ask yourself how a twelve year old just begins writing poetry out of nowhere and especially without ever having read it. Well, the truth is, I really don’t know how it happened. All I know is that, one day, I had a bunch of emotions rummaging through my body aching to get out, and I just started writing it all down. I really had no intention of writing a poem, but, when I was done writing, that’s exactly what had happened. I felt so relieved, so rejuvenated, and most of all I felt free! I liked what I saw so much that I just began writing my feelings down as often as I had something to feel. When I was younger, and had much more time on my hands, I would write at least six poems a day. Now I’m lucky if I can get out of my own head long enough to write one. However, I am in a different place in my life than I was over the past ten years or so, and writing is my first priority (after my children, of course). I have found new inspiration in life, and my intention is to hone my natural talent into something inspiring for those who read it. My goal, after achieving my Master’s Degree, is to teach poetry at the college level in hopes of inspiring someone to learn to follow their heart and pursue their passion…even if it is not in the literary world.

I am also working on my very first novel, something I had dreamed of doing ever since I was in high school, but never really had the right inspiration to get it done. After experiencing the real world, and some life changing experiences, I finally felt the urge to write again. This time it happened to be in the form of a novel, and it began last summer. I am pleased with the direction in which my book is going, and I am enjoying the experience of seeing my characters evolve with the story. I hope to have this published in the next few years.

  1. Good luck on the book! I noticed there is no e-mail address or contact info in your About note. That would be good for people like me who commented on one of your posts and reblogged it with said comment on my blog, and when I was trying to tell you all this realised that my comments were repeated twice. My apologies. Please delete which ever one you see fit so as not to clutter your comments section. And then maybe consider including an e-mail address so readers can contact you privately if they wish. Happy writing!
