Dark Places, Bright Hopes

As a poet, a lot of my inspiration and muse comes from some dark places and at times from some bright ones as well.  I have been able to express my feelings for others, gotten through heartache, fight through the pain, and even climbed out of some dark, dark places within my mind.

I have always wonder if I had not discovered writing, how would I have gotten through everything? Would I have been more involved in sports, would I have gone to the abyss of drinking, or would I have leaned more on the people who where always there for me? I may never know that answer, but I am ok with that.

I have loved the art form of writing poetry. The beauty of it and the message they hold. Now with 2 books under my belt, it is time to branch out and write my first novel. I will never leave my passion of poetry and will probably have a 3rd poetry book out before my novel, but I am looking forward to all of the excitement of achieving this next project. I can’t wait to dive into research, forming my characters into people you “meet on the street”, even the frustration of re-writes or writer’s block. How can I not get excited for this new adventure of writing!

Many new adventures are coming down the pike and I can’t wait to share it all with you.
