I am a author and poet who writes in her spare time. I have always had a passion for writing. And I have been writing since middle school. I had grew up in the Queen City in N.C. And I think peer pressure was one of the reasons why I wrote. But the main reason is because in middle school; my English teacher had us write poetry and other writings. She told me to enter my work in a poetry contest that I was very talented. I kept writing ever since. Also, I was inspired by Maya Angelou. She is my favorite poet. And today I just love to write!
