About the Author

Amelia Phoenix Desertsong is a prolific poet whose passion for weaving words into captivating verse has spanned over two decades. Born and raised on the South Shore of the Boston metro in Massachusetts, Amelia's love for the written word was ignited by her obsession with all sorts of literature.

Her keen eye for beauty and appreciation for the natural world are deeply ingrained in her poetry, as she masterfully captures the essence of the human experience through her evocative writing. Amelia began her poetic journey in her late teens, as she penned her first verses in the margins of her school notebooks. Over the years, her collection of poems grew, drawing inspiration from the likes of Emily Dickinson, Maya Angelou, and Langston Hughes, as well as her own life experiences.

A deeply introspective writer, Amelia’s first published book was a collection of her poetry reflecting her personal growth, spiritual journey, and a profound understanding of the complexities of the human heart. Her debut poetry collection, titled “Take My Hand and Lead Me Through the Fire” spans over 125 poems in various styles, a testament to her unwavering dedication to her craft.

From powerful free verse to her more common essay forms, Amelia's writing showcases her diverse and profound talent, seamlessly weaving emotion and thought into each line.

Amelia lives in Vermont with her wife Thomas, where they enjoy frequent road trips exploring the small town life and historic places of Northern New England. She's a major Trekkie, voracious reader, and an extreme nerd.
