“I am always doing that which I cannot do, in order that I may learn how to do it.” – Pablo Picasso
My motivation seems limitless, spurred by inspiration from influential thinkers like Picasso, Isaac Asimov, Robert Frost and various leaders of our time. A mantra derived from Eleanor Roosevelt plays in my most doubt-filled times to do the thing I think I cannot do. I'm doing it through this blog, sharing my deepest and silliest thoughts with the hope it might inspire one person, bring them hope to know it's not where they're from nor the one mistake they've made that defines them, but the content of their character. There's always room to grow into the people we want to be.
My stories and poetry are a momentary escape from reality peppered with pain, love, humor and a dash of phantasm. I hope you'll like my style and support the effort by picking up a copy at Amazon.
But since you're here, check out my blog for new poems, lyrics, essays, quotes and prose. Expect to find topics on life, love, and the mundane with a bit of humor, reality, positivity and mind twisters.
For literary entertainment, enlightenment and seeing how far this girl has travelled and the lessons she's learned, check out my latest book, my memoir, Busted: Memoir of Teenage Years (print edition ) and American Hope: Memoir of Teenage Years (audio version) on amazon.com. It was hard to write but what's done is done. Enjoy!
You can find my books on Amazon.com and other on-line retailers.
Paranormal Espionage Adventure
Outside of writing, I am an avid reader. My favorite book is I, Robot by Isaac Asimov. I'm always reading the latest books on Artificial Intelligence and have a couple best-selling memoirs in my queue. Sci-Fi is my favorite genre (see Aphelion Sky: Genesis)
”Sometimes our light goes out but is blown again into instant flame by an encounter with another human being.”—Albert Schweitzer
All my books were written as a personal challenge to publish in five genres in 2018. Let's say I was inspired, fired up, moved. For 2020 I'm open to new challenges and hope to get one new book written including a young audience short. Maybe I'll find the courage to step outside my comfort zone and publish my 9th book.
When I'm not near a book, I'm travelling, at a museum or somewhere on a beach hoping to be inspired.
