This is volume two in the Experience Life in Poetry series, a series that reflects observations and emotions at any given moment in life from childhood to present time. Think of moments that stood out in time for you. Moments that made you laugh, made you cry, made you think or made you sigh. Hopefully, you will experience these same emotions through the poems in the book whether it’s wonder, laughter, understanding or something all together different. I hope it makes you think or makes you feel.
This volume contains approximately 90 poems organized in the following topics:
Family – these include thoughts, feelings and experiences with family members from parents (including step-parents), siblings, grandparents, and more
Friendship – these include reflections of what good friends mean to us throughout our life
Romantic Relationships – this section contains expressions of joys, struggles, frustrations and fears experienced as people enter into romantic relationships from the dream to the reality of forever or goodbye
Enjoy your journey through life in poetry!

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Go for it! Write what you love, what’s in your heart, what inspires you. These are the things that will make your writing great.
I have been an avid reader since I was a young child – happily sacrificing TV and playtime in order to read a good book. I have been capturing observations, feelings and events in poems and stories since middle school. As I have grown older, I continued to write and create stories to entertain family and friends and to help celebrate life’s special moments.
For many years I suffered from symptoms that went undiagnosed. After years of suffering and searching for answers, I was finally diagnosed several years ago with Fibromyalgia and some other underlying conditions. With a well-rounded, holistic treatment plan I am feeling better and living a more active and joyous life.
I am passionate about education in all formats. Since 1999 my professional career has focused on the design and development of training for employees across industries and educational formats. I have specialized in analyzing the need for training and assessing the best method for training and delivery (classroom, live virtual training, blended, web-based training, etc). My writing skills assisted me in delivering solutions that engaged learners and translated to application on the job.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Organizational Development and Human Resource development as well as my Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.
I live in Kansas with my husband, teenage son and our two gorgeous, ornery and energetic Scottie pups (Conner and Zoe). In my spare time I enjoy photography, spending time with family and friends, and traveling around the world with family.
I am always excited to hear from readers. Please join me on my website or Facebook page. I look forward to hearing from you!
