I had been writing poetry since I was eleven years old and to suddenly have this outlet of creativity just disappear was devastating.   But here I am today the Author of four published books “Through Whose Eyes: Rise, Child of God” a book of poems and short-stories and “Toni’s Blues” a tale of domestic violence about a woman who searched for love in the wrong men. “Dark Harmonie” the tale of a gifted woman who goes through a transformation, she is hunted and marked for death because others want what she possesses. “30 The Dragonfly Catcher” My intentions weren’t to make it erotic, but to show just how far some of us will go to punish ourselves or fill a void. My character CaSandra is a fragmented woman with three sides to her personality. I hit the Massachusetts foster system at the age of thirteen with my first foster home being the home of a Pastor and his wife. There were other homes that followed sometime with me going in the front door and literally out the back door. One of these homes included the home of a woman who chose to have all the children who entered her home baptized and so I was. Toward the end of my run as a ward of the State of Massachusetts there was Helen Green, who became the mother I always wanted, I miss her very much. I wish she were still here, but she passed many years ago from cancer. I take comfort in knowing that she can see me and has been watching all these years. After a brief stint in the Army I made my rounds at a number of the Massachusetts Colleges and Universities while struggling with Psych issues which also attributed to my substance abuse and later becoming addicted. I was bruised by my past, but I am no longer a broken woman I have walked through and sometimes crawled fighting to hang on for another day. Even though my journey had not been one of comfort the Lord told me that I should now enjoy the journey.
