I am a married mother of two teenage children. I have always enjoyed writing dating all the way back to high school. I always did quite well in an Advanced Writing class.
I began my family shortly after high school, and the first lesson I learned being the mother of a newborn is, writing needed to take a backseat. I did, however, manage to teach myself Spanish as a second language during my 9 months of pregnancy.
I began writing again in 2010. First, poetry began to flow from my soul. News articles and a small biography followed. Finally, I began blogging about my life experiences and opinions.
I have earned several accomplishments in the short period of time that I have written; poetry contest trophies, published articles on both Technorati and Yahoo Associated Content, and blog awards from my peers.
What started out as an outlet for me to express myself had turned into a want… no, a need to share my life adventures with the world.
I have always been an advocate for awareness groups but, after recently losing my sister to Cancer three days after her diagnosis, I became more focused on spreading awareness of this horrible plague that is slaughtering so many loved ones. I also spread awareness of child abuse, being a child abuse survivor myself.
Knowledge is power and people cannot fully understand something if nobody speaks about it.
My dream is to finish two biographies; one for my sister and one for myself. If I become a published author it would be magnificent but, I will be just as contented if all I ever achieve is to touch just one person’s soul so deeply that their life is forever altered.
You will always find those who think they know what is your duty better than you know it. -Ralph Waldo Emerson
