About the Author

I was raised as an orphan in Seattle, and through the grace of God, He gave me adoptive parents at 36-years of age in Denver, Colorado. I have survived many miracles from the love from God. I walked after a stroke at 32-years old and was told I would never walk again. I am free drug free from an addiction of 25 years. In 2008, I survived a serious hit & run accident with brain injury. I had a left hip replacement & two compound fractures in the calf. My back & lower neck were fractured and in a total of seven breaks, I walked after being on a walker for over a year. After a year on the walker, I joined the Breast Cancer Walk and told that I would not write again. These are some the many miracles that I have been blessed with, to be able to write inspirational poems about Real Life as I see life to be. I overcame these obstacles and more, with determination and God encouraging me to believe, “I CAN, I CAN and I CAN”... I moved to Denver at 19-years old, prostituted for six years, became a flight attendant for nine years, sold real estate for ten years, and became a custodian for four years to buy my house qualifying for only $39,000. Now my home is worth about $200,000. I became a Certified Nurses Assistant for one year until being in a hit and run car/scooter accident. Having become disabled, I wrote a book about HOPE, Real Life, my life story of HOPE in poetry form. I just hope that I can be of some help through my book called HOPE. I want people to know that they are not alone because YOU CAN SURVIVE TOO.
