My love for words has always included poetry in various forms.  I started writing poems in grade school and found that the verses were a form of hide and seek for my emotions.  What I couldn't say out loud, I could covertly express in my poems.  The feelings that were not "appropriate" or "troublesome" became acceptable under the guise of  iambic pentameter.  

Throughout many of life's challenges, successes, and desires, poetry has been my "wing person".  It has accompanied me on travels near and far.  I have filled countless journals with verse. Some poems were short and cryptic.  Others were long and detailed.  Whatever forms I chose to write contributed to the literary history of my life thus far.

I have two completed manuscripts of poetry ready to be formatted. Why haven't I done that yet?  Those scripts are extremely personal and document key points in my life that can be difficult to share.  I am considering the possibility of releasing some of the poems with the novel "Four-Ninety and Holding" as I feel they would add to the message that Marahlena is trying to convey.  We'll see....

This section will be reserved for the poetry I am ready to release.  It is also a way to push me toward publishing those manuscripts. Some of my poetry has been published at:

About Me

My photo

I have over 20 years of experience in Early Childhood Development Birth-Age 5 including work in classrooms and as an Infant/Toddler Program Manager.  I have several writing projects in progress including a resource book for parents of infants and infant room teachers in a full day child development (school) program.  The book will provide families with information about what to expect and how to monitor their child's progress in an Infant room.  My second book project involves how to cope with family challenges, lessons in forgiveness, dealing with a spouse's addiction, and reinventing yourself along the way.  I am excited about all of these projects and am currently accepting comments regarding experiences my readers have had placing their child into a full day child care program.  I would also like to hear from Infant room teachers.
