Vanessa's fourth grade teacher challenged her to write better poetry and essays. Already an avid reader, she took that challenge and ran with it. Though not previously published, she constantly works to improve her craft, and to provide poetry that is both interesting and real.
Vanessa's love of the written word is profound. She claims that poetry saved her life during some very bleak experiences, and it is her greatest outlet for both her passions and her joys. She feels that the greatest joy of all will be the opportunity to share her poetry with the world.
Vanessa is a resident of Vineland, New Jersey. While not college educated, she feels that the various jobs that she has held over the years has made her a complex and controversial character. Her friends have labelled her "delightfully excentric." and she hopes that this is a trait that you will enjoy in her writing.
Vanessa believes in the old addage "What goes around, comes around," and plans to share the royalties she receives from this and future writing with several charities, and with her church.
