Tima Chavis-Holder

Spartanburg, South Carolina, United States

When I was five my parents divorced, leaving a tremendous unfillable gap in my existance. I married in 1993 trying to fill that gap, it wasn't until I gave birth to my son Michael that I realized that love was the only thing to bridge the way. My marriage began it's downward spiral, I gave birth to my daughter in 1996 and in 2000 I was divorced, therefore repeating what my own parents had done to me.
I hit rock bottom and realized that my own happiness was up to me. After a large amount of personal destructiveness and earth shattering soul searching I climbed my way back to the top and among the living. Soon after I met the love of my life and now and set to be married once again. This time for far different reasons than the first. This time, I am running toward something and not away. Thus began my writing career, I am putting my experience and dreams behind my pen (or should I say keyboard) and I am making my own dreams come true. I have published several poems on the internet and currently finishing up my first novel. I hope to someday be seen on bookstore shelves nationwide, I pray that my dreams are someday a reality. I don't think that we are born loving life, most of us have to be whipped by it first. I wasted the first half; I don't intend on the same for the second half. Often I think of the last words of Poncho De Villa when he said and I quote "Don't let it end like this, tell them I said something."
