Author Bio

This book begins from my childhood, through high school/teen years, and into becoming the woman I am today. I love words and poetry and have won several competitions and been featured in literary magazines and even been featured in an anthology book. I wrote ‘Trading Cigarettes For Serotonin’ for those who are misunderstood, not only by others, but also misunderstood by themselves. 

I wrote it for the ones who can only ever seem to gather the words ‘its hard to explain’, although they are begging for someone to listen to them. I wrote it for those who want to be nothing  or no one importnat when they grew up, because people made them feel being nothing was what they were best at. I wrote this for the ones who think they don’t belong or have been made to feel like they don’t. 

I thank everyone for sharing my words and helping my words find the hearts they are seeking.

Written during emotional exploration of difficult situations in life and putting words to moods that defined these moments of living...This is poetry.

‘Trading Cigarettes For Serotonin’ contains 5 sections; Part 1: Norepinephrine, Part 2: Dopamine, Part 3: Oxytocin, Part 4: Endorphins and Part 5: Serotonin. All of the content has come from feelings and thoughts during key episodes and periods in my life, which I have divided into pieces of this life that it relates to.

I thought this concept was an honest and perfect way to elaborate and help the readers really feel like they are walking with me on this journey.

Using each second and moment as an inspiration to write poetry, turning my life into a work of art and knowing as I survived, it was my poetry that saved me. I wrote this, to save another in return as I am not alone in these feelings, only it often feels I am.

A haunting trip into the subconscious. This book is a garden of dreams full of stunning wildflowers that are beautiful, yet at the same time, very poisonous.

“A journey into a soul of a young woman experiencing every brilliant moment of living…wonderful…” Tabitha, Indiebook Reviewer
