I am a mother of 6 kids, 4 biological and 2 step. I have been divorced, gained and lost weight, have tattoos, a foul mouth at times and i have been writing a long time. I started out writing poetry, dark Emily Dickens type stuff and went on to win editors choice with the National Poets Society!! The older I have gotten and the more i live life , the more i have realized how much writing about real issues is so much more fulfilling. Hope you enjoy!
