About Me

I have been an addicted reader from a very young age. Reading sparks the imagination, takes me away from reality, inspires me to provide to same escape for other readers.

Like many of you I am not a full-time writer. I write when I get a chance. That used to be very little and then it was a very lot and now it is not at all. A few of my past pieces will be published at some point this year. I am here mostly as an editor and perhaps I will meet a new muse along the way. If nothing else, it is great to make friends and meet rising voices.


*I do not always enjoy honest critique as it can be harsh, but its what I'm asking for. Always tell me the truth. As much as I enjoy hearing positive feelings and comments about my writing, if the work isn't great enough to be published I want to know that, and I want to know what you think it could use for improvement.

As for my own reviews, I will be just as honest with you. If you'd like me to read something of yours please email me with a link, but be prepared for real critique. I find positive in almost everything I read, and want the best for your writing future, but I will give you suggestions for how to make your writing better.

I know what it is like to have your writing ripped apart and handed back to you in pieces that you're suggested to fix. It isn't easy, but at some point you have to accept that the "reader" is the person you must appeal to and if the reader is telling you something is wrong, you should consider their opinion without hurt feelings.

Oh yeah, waaaay too busy! I did get to take a vacation though last week which was amazing. Hopefully I can put some sort of a manuscript together soon and get something published already lol.

And so, let us abandon reason to converse in rhyme (reality)

I love your poetry for every reason in the world.

But I love your reviews for two reasons:



1) Humans are selfish and like s**t for themselves

2) You give me something to think about! Obviously, constructive criticism is always great... but a lot of the time you respond with poetry of your own, eating it up and spitting up a new perspective. (Okay, "spitting up" is an awful metaphor, especially since I"m trying to display gratitude here... obviously I'm not nearly as competent as you are, here)

Yay, you!

that's awesome, my muse has deserted me at the moment, but I expect great things when she returns :)
