People that don’t know me assume I’m angry but I’m not. A few Just Friends members got a copy of my chapbook in 2016 after it came out. A few family members and a few more friends got a copies of my chapbook in 2017. I couldn’t be happier. Neil my step dad told me he really enjoyed the poems in my chapbook. When he told me that he was driving me home from work and on his car radio was NPR. They just so happened to be giving the backstory to how the poem America the Beautiful was written on NPR. My favorite poem/song is the Star Spangled Banner but I like America the Beautiful too! I am thinking about August. Soon it will be announced when I have orientation at my Mercer job. I’m looking forward to the Holidays this year. I’ll have a memoir (almost a book). I have a second chapbook manuscript that I will submit to publishers after next January 2018. I will submit to like ten chapbook contests in the Winter.
