I came late to poetry, beyond a few lost teenage efforts. I began writing again when I was in my early twenties. The first poem seemed to happen to me, after this the words spilled.
I began writing in notepads before creating a blog. This escalated to open mics, performances, writing workshops and event hosting. Today I have published one book, Visible Thoughts, with a second in production.
