I am a mother, wife, author, writer/song-writer, and poet. I love to write on various topic matters but my favorite is writing about love and romance. I have always had a passion to write on this subject since I was a teen. It fascinated me. I love telling the story about love and the ways in which it affects it's characters and their lives. I have been writing for several years now and plan on pursuing my dream of writing a best-seller. I have written several books of poetry and some romance novels and plan on writing more.
My passion for writing poetry began while attending grade school. My Literature teacher asked me to write a poem and that is when the desire began. I wrote it and she loved it. I was amazed at the reaction received from her and my class-mates. This helped inspire me to continue writing poetry. When writing poetry, I am telling my life-story or perhaps the story of others. The words flow into my mind naturally and I began jotting them down on paper and there the poem is written. It is a feeling that flows through my mind and soul. I have to express it on paper so that the story can be told. I am a passionate, loving person and care a lots about people. My desire is to try to help e someone be happy or at least try to encourage or uplift someone when they are feeling blue or feel like no one cares. I love listening and trying my best to help them solve their problem if I can.
Meditation and praying to God is a daily ritual. I have to have my alone time to meditate and feel my soul and spirit and that connection with God. I enjoy hanging out with my family and friends grilling out or traveling together. Meeting interesting people in different locations is something I enjoy. Dancing and listening to good music is good for my soul. Dancing helps me to relax and just let my mind be free. These are some of the things I enjoy doing.

Interests: Writing romance novels, screenplays about romance, mystery, and suspense. love, etc. writing Poetry on various topics. Song-writing which includes all types, country, pop, R&B, Love, Contemporary and Gospel. I also enjoy traveling to different locations,
