Mother.  Advocate.  Writer. 

Non-fiction is my usual genre but my divorce has led me to experimentations in poetry. 

Greatest influences have been Alice Walker, Maya Angelou and Rudyard Kipling.

I am in the middle of a move and a divorce.  I have young children so things are very chaotic.  Please understand that I will start commenting on others and reading their work as soon as I get through this chaos.

"Writing is like showering, you have to do it everyday or else you'll stink."  Anon.
