About Me & My Journey
Welcome to the “Walk In Verse” Journey, a place where I share short stories and poetry of events, past and present, which affect each one of us daily. Some writings will be light in heart to bring a smile and a bit of happiness, while others will weigh heavily on the soul.
How did this all start? It all started back in 2007 when my family and I faced a tragic experience. My eyes opened for the first time, and from that point forward the world no longer looked the same. We lived through the full effects of social injustice, and the scales were unbalanced. One day a book will be written to share the events transpired. The time was dark, and writing was the means to keep my sanity. Today I write about issues that reflect the past and present as well as events in our modern-day.
I will continue to write to help others, to share what I learned, to help others heal from the injustices each of us faces daily. If I can touch one person with the words I share, then I know this journey is worth traveling.
How do I help others? As I was writing as a way to heal, I started to submit my work to different publications. Some were responsive, others outright silent. At times getting published seemed hopeless at best. I realized that as a new unknown writer it is difficult to get a break. Just like in all businesses, it is a matter of who you know and networking. After much consideration and a few publications under my belt, I wanted to help the writing community. To help writers build confidence the self-funded project Written Tales was born. A publication to help writers of all levels connect with a reader base, a base to enjoy their creative writing efforts. All sales from my site are used to help support the writing community.
So please join me in my journey and let my words be your eyes to the events and trials that swirl around us.
