Joined 5 years ago from New Zealand




Also follow me on:

From a very young age I have always been an avid reader and and poet. Encouraged by my mum who had an immense passion for words, I grew to share that same passion and love of the words that sprung from the pages. I gleaned at a very young age that the power of words had such an awesome ability to inspire, uplift, and bring joy to lives, it was a natural progression to want to express through the written word.

Although I am an amateur writer I enjoy exploring the various different human experiences that span across the globe where I can delve deeply into the diversity of cultures and belief systems of mankind.

I relish participating and observing in this dance of life and this is what I write about. No matter how great or small the dance is, if it flows, it will find its way on to paper through my writing.
