I’m also a wife, dog momma, and for my day job… I work in insurance. As the office manager it’s up to me to make sure everyone — agent included! — gets things done.
I was born and raised in Oklahoma, and now I live just miles down the street from where I grew up. I’m a small-town girl, even though my town isn’t so small anymore.
I write poetry for a multitude of reasons. I grew up playing with poetry and wanting to be a novelist, but the more I tried novel-ing the more I began poet-ing instead. (I’m the odd one out in my writing group The Rabid Rainbow Ferret Society.) I like silly things. Dark things. Traditional things. Odd things. I grew up somewhere between Seuss and Poe, if that tells you anything about me.
I use this blog to chat about poetry and books in general, in addition to an assortment of other topics that catch my attention including snail mail/postcrossing, the KonMari method, and the Japanese language and culture. (I also love alliteration. And it happens all the time when I talk or write. Without trying. I’m going to blame Seuss for that one, but I’m okay with it.)

* I try to post at least once a month just to keep some consistency around here, but sometimes there will be multiple posts in a single month and occasionally a month will slip by in silence. You just have to roll with how life works and sometimes that’s not always according to plan.
