What's going on with you and your brand?

Right now I have an open call for submissions for an Anthology. 

So, I'm publishing a book of poems and collecting poems from creatives of all ages and from all places. It has been a beautiful project so far, and I am looking forward to publishing the book in 2023. 

The theme for the last round of submissions is "Breaking" What were some situations that you felt broke you? How did you overcome them? What was the straw that broke the camel's back? Feel free to use these prompts or experiment with your own. Submissions are due Oct 15, 2022.  

I also have a self-published line of aesthetic journals available at! They are meant to give people a beautiful place to get out their thoughts and process their experiences. The covers are abstract and unique. The pages are intentionally left blank for users to write their own story.

I also have a free e-book called "100 Positive Affirmations" available for download at The goal is to get more people to practice positive self-talk. The way we talk about ourselves really impacts our experiences on this earth, so developing a practice where we are able to pour into ourselves is important.
