About Me

Self-proclaimed Author | Blogger | Creative Writer | Poet |

Connecting with people to live and love on purpose. 

POETRY ~ literary work in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings and ideas by the use of distinctive style and rhythm; poems collectively or as a genre of literature

The Poetry Journal, began as a self-published collaboration of writings with my late husband, Marcel (JEMM 2/12/14).  We were two close friends who committed our lives to each other in Holy Matrimony and stayed committed in our marriage until his death departed me and my three sons. My determination and my faith allowed me to continue on.  Now enjoy my writings on romance, travel & adventure through my creative writing series on Love, Relationships, and Restoration.

One Funny Fact:  My senior year in high school, as I was learning how to drive, I was in a minor car accident that broke a small bone in my right hand.  After surgery, I was forced to learn how to write left-handed and there my signature was created.
