The Write Path…
I began my writing journey in the second grade when I preferred to write stories and practice cursive over learning mathematics.
In high school I was awarded for my skills in writing and my thirst for learning more by being nominated by my Language Arts teacher and honored by my school. It was throughout this time that I continued honing my writing skills and decided to major in writing during college.
In my third year of college I self published my first chapbook by the name of “Hidden Voices” on Amazon and had my poem “Poison Bottles” published both in the University of North Georgia’s magazine, The Chestatee Review, as well as in the MyForsyth Magazine in Cumming, Ga.
I worked as a tutor in the Writing Center of my college for four consecutive semesters and as a Writing Fellow, a type of writing tutor, for two consecutive semesters and I graduated on May 4, 2019 with a B.A. in English Writing and Publication with a minor in Graphic Design.
This degree combination has given me the ability to find work as a writer, editor, tutor, and graphic designer.
I have participated in the Jasper Holiday Market as a vendor selling my poetry books in 2019 and 2021 as well as the Braselton Market in 2021 and the Cumming Farmer’s Market selling my books and writing custom on-the-spot poems.
I have been hired to complete the first round of edits in the book “180 Days” by Patrick D. Gibbs (link). As well as to edit pamphlets and local newsletters.
As of February 2020 I began to create my children’s book series “Tire Tales” and as of January 2022 there are four books currently in the series. I also created a special website for the series at tiretalesadventures.com.
As of January 2022 I am currently partnered with funeral homes, flower shops, pet clinics and euthanasia, and wedding venues across Georgia to create custom poems on any subject. My poems are almost always received with tearful eyes and full hearts.
Stay up to date with me on my journey! Send me a letter! But most of all…thank you for reading!
As a writer I love nothing more than to explore the possible. As a novelist, I like to stick to themes of science fiction involving space and other worlds. As a children’s book writer, I love to express the multitude of things there are to learn and explore in every day life. As a poet, my themes vary but they all play on time and the shifting of intention.
With my beginning in college level tutoring, the students I tutor will learn everything there is to know about brainstorming, research, outlining, format, and revising an essay as well as how to use rhetorical theories, including Kairos, to help make their piece the strongest it can be. My goal as a tutor is to meet the student where they’re at, learn how they learn best, and take off running into the proverbial sunset.
As an editor my main goal is to keep the writer’s voice intact while making the document streamlined, coherent, and grammatically correct. There is nothing more important than the world getting to meet the writer’s true voice. I make sure to create a seamless experience for the reader while keeping the writer’s voice.
Poetry is the kind of creative writing I am most versed in. In the later half of 2021, I shifted my focus to writing custom poetry. I have been published in two magazines: The Chestatee Review and MyForsyth, and have self published three of my own books on Amazon. You may find them here, here, and here.
Let’s make something together.
