'It becomes the boring sound of the same tone, while music is the art of unifying notes
of varying height and length: a fusion of opposites in a creation of captivating harmony.'

It wasn't just a stranger who came to my door one chilly winter's day several years ago: with the last thing on my mind came the inspiration for a sleeping poet to wake up, eager to come out and play; an unfamiliar version of me, waiting behind a previously invisible door to finally be discovered. Playfully, she would lead, and sometimes push me into the direction I now know I was meant to go: to offer a different perspective, a bigger picture ―to inspire change within and around us through the beauty and power of poetry.

"Your work and your voice is worthy and important"
―Frontier Poetry (Chapbook Contest '22)
'How to see what we can't? To be
what we were not meant
to know but discover we already possess
and forever have: naturally skilled to impress
our gifts onto matters that positively affect
all of us.' ―from Behind A Turtle's Shell
Through at times critical but mostly loving eyes, Unity I Am seeks to present a bigger picture to a world that seems so lost. To me, humanity is not so much lost but searching, evolving and realigning while immersed in chaos. Similar to that of a building going through major renovations and upgrades; however painful this process can be and unfortunately is.
"Your work has a great voice, and I'm sure we'll see more of
your success in the future" ―Andrews McMeel Publishing (2021)
Out of nowhere, in the
Are you a fan of romance and all things dreamy? I never was. Not because I wasn't into love or didn't know it: I have been in a wonderful 21-year relationship with a man who was the love of my life; really down to earth, I simply didn't have a romantic bone in my body. Then one chilly winter's day in 2016 ―single, but not looking for or even open to anything new while housebound ―a stranger in my doorway would change that and so much more. Barely in my life and for only a few months, he would become the inspiration for the poems in this intimate book about the life-changing journey of love I had no choice but to be on.
