Ever since I can remember, I’ve enjoyed sharing stories with others. The first story I wrote was when I was in sixth grade. I used my weekly vocabulary assignments to write the story of Jamie, a boy who kept finding trouble wherever he would go. While my writing style has gotten a bit more sophisticated since then, my motivation in writing hasn’t changed. I write because there are stories inside me that need to be told.
I currently have several fiction projects in process. I’m shopping for a home for my short story, “Landslide.” I have a collection of short stories, “Indier Grey” I wrote as writing exercises that I’d like to finish up and self-publish. I also am working on several novels, including Night Song and Dances With Crazy. Keep your eyes on the blog for more information about my fiction works as I progress with them. I can’t wait to share my stories with you!
I’ve also been writing poetry for a long time. It may sound cheesy, but I was greatly inspired by Maya Angelou’s poetry in the film Poetic Justice, which I saw as a young teenager. Since then, I’ve tried to maintain a poetry journal, and I’ve had a few of my poems published (“Flower,” “The Queen of the Tree,” “Leaving”). I’m looking to publish more of my poetry and I’m working on a collection of poetry, Shattered To Bits that will benefit domestic violence organizations.
I’m looking forward to sharing more of my creative works with the world.
