I have a background. Don't we all? What has made me "more me" than anything else is that I started a journey when I was but thirteen. That was the year that my dad died and the year that a poet was born in me.
I've had lots of influences along the way. When I first started writing poetry, I would have to say that Robert Frost inspired me. When I started writing stories, it was Stephen King. When I started to branch out into songs, it was my fiance, Revonda. Through out all the branches of this tree, it has always been my mother.
