About Queen of Spades

There are different components to the writing anatomy which creates Queen of Spades—part passion of a poet and part cadence of a storyteller.

Since the age of eleven, Queen of Spades' blood flowed with the rush of ideas that dripped in a rhythm inundated with stanzas. She first made her writing debut as a presenter and poet in the collective, Soulful Branches: Words and Sounds. Her other poetic writes include Reflections of Soul, the Eclectic collection (Skin Edition and Beyond the Skin), Spaded Truths: Themes and Proclamations, and Private Pain: Amidst these Ashes, as well as being a contributing writer in the April 2014 poetry collection Words of Fire and Ice by Durham Editing and Ebooks and The Sea of Conscience by M.J. Holman.

Reflections of Soul was selected as one of the top books by Koobug, and Private Pain: Amidst These Ashes hit the Amazon Best Sellers List in three categories—Contemporary Poetry, Women’s Poetry, and Biographical Fiction.

Shortly thereafter, Queen of Spades’ desire for storytelling decided to take spotlight alongside its poetic counterpart. Her first independent short story release “Taint on Religion” debuted in May 2014. Two other short stories “Mr. Bradley’s Garden” and “When Summer Lingers” were first in the June 2014 short story collection Summer Shorts II: Best Kept Secrets by Durham Editing and Ebooks prior to being released on their own.

The short story anthology Continuous Drips received distinction as an Amazon Best Selling Book and showcases three of her stories “Misfortune”, “Afro Shock”, and “Útil”. She also made an appearance in All Authors Publishing House’s 1st short story anthology, Concordant Vibrancy: Unity with her piece “The Authentic Snap.” Concordant Vibrancy: Unity joined Continuous Drips in that distinction in May 2015.

In addition, Queen of Spades was included in short story anthology Crackles of the Heart in July 2015, followed by a second poetry joint venture with MJ Holman "Waves to Light" in September 2015.

Future projects by Queen of Spades involve poetry collection Spaded Truths II: Life-o-Suction and participation in the short story anthology Concordant Vibrancy II: Vitality.

Some say Queen of Spades is a Poet of the People. Others label her a Life Writer. One thing remain constant in her delivery, whether it’s a poem or a story—it touches each individual in a sovereign way that lingers well after the diction is complete.

Review by: Carol Cassada on Jan. 24, 2015 :
This is the second book of poetry I’ve read from Queen of Spades and just like the first book, I was amazed by her writing.

All of her poems are wonderful, a few of my personal favorites are Promise, Loving (You and Me), Precipice, Impede, and Loving Her (Never Broken).

She touches on a variety of topics; everything from heartache to working in customer service to women’s fashion. With each poem, she does a perfect job of conveying the human emotion and drawing you in.
