I have been writing since I was a child, got heavily involved in it as a teenager and then took a break for much of my adulthood. Over the last few years I have gotten back into writing, exploring poetry and other types. I am a dark poetess, who writes a variety of things from twisted takes on fairy tales to simple poems of sadness and loss. I am into hardcore music, classic rock, heavy metal...music and writing are my sanity, they have been my life source for many years. Edgar Allan Poe is a constant inspiration and my favorite poet, followed by Jim Morrison. I also draw from the works of Rudyard Kipling, Longfellow, Stephen King and many other authors.
