Who knew writing about yourself is the hardest writing of all?
I grew up loving words, language, and rules … rules that I created and demanded my friends all follow. That concept morphed into a hyper sense of fairness and fighting for the underdog by middle and high school.
Writing had always been a quiet background throughout my childhood and adolescence but it was in college that I developed a need to write. The angst and turmoil and growing up all became the fuel for my poetry and short stories. I had a published poem in college and from then on, I was hooked. Hooked on seeing my name in print yes, but hooked on conveying my thoughts and sharing them.
Now I have had a short story award, a number of poetry readings, and have started the self publishing route. I am very excited by the direction my work and focus have taken and I look forward to sharing more with you.
