I love playing with words. I like to give them a lift up onto a trampoline, then watch as they jump into a back flip, a somersault, or a pirouette; I love to watch them as they land and spring up again, only to become an avian beauty and fly away.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
My first book ready for publication was a poetry book.

Vain Imaginations is a collection of poems written over the course of 2000 to 2014. The poems range in nature from whimsical to political, from heart wrenching to heart felt, from word play to imaginative.
