let me tell you a story..

It’s hard to believe that at 36-years-old, I'm constantly checking off goals with determination. I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. I am a multifaceted soul who loves doing different things. I am an author, graphic designer, and journalist. If you look deep enough, you can see I am an artist to my core. I have always loved reading, singing and dancing. My love for writing poetry stemmed from my need to journal. From there, it became short stories and then novels. To date, I have published six books of poetry, Disturbia, hello. goodbye. never again, Liberated, Late Night Thought, Love, Heartbreaks & Hangovers and Tales of a Recovering Love Addict. For the novel lovers, I have published a trilogy—Who Do You Love, Who Do You Love Too, and Who Do You Love Now, and a collaboration called Smitten Kitten.

I've managed to earn a Bachelors of Science in Graphic Design and a Masters of Art in Communications. Because I love all kinds of writing— I freelance for a few local publications and blogs. Somewhere in between writing books and jet setting, I am also the owner of ColorMeBlu Designs. Since I am in love with words & art, I will continue to build my brand through writing and graphic design. Still residing in my hometown, I am currently preparing to release two new books— The Side Chick Chronicles Vol. 1 & a prequel.

Always finding time to relax, I read a few books here and there in between attending book functions. You can probably find me at your local taco joint, concert or on social media where I post my daily madness! Oh and be sure to check out my blog... it has some great content and inside scoop to my upcoming releases.
