Hi there! I’m an author/creative writer/poet. I have 3 poetry books out now, The Green Maze, The Riddle and the Dedication, and The Riddle and the Dedication 2. I'm currently working on a poetry book called, Life & Belief.

I’ve been passionate about creative writing since I learned to read and write at the age of 4. I’ve been writing poetry ever since my Elementary School years. I've always loved to read. English, Literature, and Creative Writing were 3 of my favorite subjects in school. Having been a Librarian for a long time (Libraries Rock!) I always encourage youth to read all they can. I still volunteer for Summer Reading Programs and help get kids excited about reading.

My influences are Sylvia Plath, Emily Dickinson, Edna St. Vinc

My icon is a, what I call, a conceptual still life. It is an 11" x 14" mixed media drawing. I'm the artist. This artwork is one in a series of conceptual still life drawings that I've created. I love skulls, and moths, and butterflies, and such. The human skull and white moth represent death. In these drawings, I address the relationship between life and death, and the meaning of life and death. I express what I, and others, believe life and death mean. To create these pieces, I use graphite, ink, pastels, charcoal, watercolor, and acrylic. Usually, I do my own book cover designs for my poetry books. Unless I don't want to. Then I hire a book cover designer. I enjoy working with Red Raven Book Design. They created the cover for my poetry book, The Green Maze. I plan to use them again for one of my upcoming books. I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Studio Art/Visual Art. I work on the Board Of Directors at an art gallery, local to me. I'm also illustrating a couple of children's books for a fellow author about Negro League Baseball players. It's awesome to be around such talented artists and doing what I'm passionate about, most of the time.

Sounds Bad, But It's True

Some people see things this way: "You aren't interested in collaborating with me because you haven't even bothered to look at my work." But what they don't realize is that actually, I'm not at all interested in collaborating with them, because indeed I have seen their work. It was so unimpressive that I wish I could un-see it.
