I started to write poems at the age of nine. I was reading assorted works by poets such as Emily Dickinson, Edgar Allen Poe, Khalil Gibran, David Frost and many more. I was intrigued so much by their emotional effects and descriptive words that it influenced me to write my own poems. I have been writing ever since.
What is the story behind your book FROM THE HEART: A JOURNEY OF LOVE?
In all honesty, this book of poems and haikus is a collection from my journals for 20+ years. I am inspired by my surroundings as well as my family and friends. I jot down in my journal a particular event or moment in life that emotionally touched my heart and soul, whether happiness, sadness, anger, frustration, or humor.
