Hello, my name is Deborah and I have been on Authors Den for 5 years I write poetry, different generes. I started writing poetry while in college and picked it up again '2007'. Many of my poems are stories. I write about experiences and what I am passionate about.
I have three other sisters, two older and one younger than I. Although we live in different states we keep in touch weekly.
I was born in Chicago, Illinois. My parents have passed away... ... ...
When I was twelve I knew I wanted to be a writer, but my life had taken many twists and turns before I really became serious about writing...My mother had bought my first typewriter when I was in high school.
Why do I write? I appreciate other writers and in turn they motivate me. For myself, writing has a calming effect and I find myself at peace. I try to instill my thoughts and ideas into my poetry. Writing gives me structure and discipline as well.
I started reading at a young age, always going to the library with my younger sister. I love books! Actually I have a small library and I'm way behind in my reading. My favorites are nonfiction, biographies and mysteries.
I attended Thornton Jr. College, Harvey, IL. It later moved to South Holland IL. and renamed South Suburban College. I received an Associate of Arts Degree. I majored in Social work and minored in Sociology. I did not go into Social work.
There are many fine authors here...many from different parts of the world, giving you their views from as far away as South America and Europe. My reasons for enjoying Authors Den: I like their setup, the tools they provide to be able to communicate with any said author no matter where they live.
I have made many friends here... .. .
Thank you for taking time in reading my bio and my poetry. I hope you continue to come back...
