The secret's out!! I'm re-publishing my first poetry collection. When it was first published in 2017, I realized quickly I wasn't ready for it to be out in the world yet. After many years and many revisions, I am very happy to say it's something I'm proud of. I hope you all love these poems, too. ...more

while reading I felt like I had already read this poetry collection but I did not actually remember any of the poems which either means that they weren't memorable enough or I didn't pay enough attention the first time I read it (most probably the second) so, even though I like the poems, I don't feel like giving more than a 3 and a half star rating. ...more

Ah! A friend published a BOOK! Amazing!!

These words were dripping with pain, but there was such a weird comfort in reading experiences from someone that you completely relate to. Really, really touching words.

This poetry collection really had me reliving all of my pain, all of my love, all of my happiness. I could relate so much to her words, like same, girl, comparing it to parallels in my life. I literally felt like I was being spoken to like someone was trying to tell me, that it has been a lot, everything we have been through but we are going to be ok. That really hit me, and I loved it!
