Carey Milton


I am an aspiring writer, poet and artist from Melbourne, Australia
Born with an overwhelming passion towards understanding, dealing and helping myself along with many others to not only survive depression, panic disorder and every other 'mental illness' there is under the sun, but to live a fulfilling, content life,
with a dash of crazy strife.
I have endured an extremely burdensome upbringing as mental illness was severely misunderstood by my family and peers.
My lifelong goal has and always will be a triumphant trek.

I am a mother of 2 beautiful and intelligent children who have inspired me greatly.
One of each with so much to teach, kisses for both of you, one on each cheek!

I am here to make a difference so over analyzing the ever evolving mind is where my constant passion for a newly creative masterpiece takes place on a daily basis.
Possessing an empathetic soul along with a compassionate heart led me towards attaining my bachelor degree in psychology and social science.
Delving deep within the psyche is where I crave to concoct and create. Exploring the nooks and crannies of my cranium is simply exhilarating to me.
Deciding I had too many years of poetry on paper and art pieces cluttering my closets, I began posting my pieces online.
Within 2 years I had made a name for myself and in the second year of posting my work into numerous poetry competitions I achieved 1st place for my poem 'The Quiet Achiever', January 2014.

In March 2016 I self-published 2 poetry e-books on Smashwords.
'Born to Mourn' and 'Regression in Session'.
I'm currently working on my first full novel,'Twelve'.

Inspiration comes every day
Appreciation goes a long way.

Smashwords Interview

Describe your desk
Cramped with style.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I am able to relay my most internal inspirational being from mind to body. Vocally, words for me don't compare or come close to portraying what I really need to say. I have an overactive, empathetic spirit constantly in search of unearthing a rhythmic flow of rhyme in time with my ever evolving soul and mind. Voila!
