Are My Eyes Still Tame? | BOOK RELEASE

Hey you wonderful people.

I'm sorry that I have been absent from this corner of the internet for a little while.

I've been working on something pretty big.

And it's finally here, so I wanted to share it with you all.

You ready?

Now available on Amazon, my second poetry collection "Are My Eyes Still Tame?"...

I poured my soul into this project.  And I hope you can feel that when you read it.

In its pages, I write about different aspects of my life that I have seen, perceived, and beheld through my brown eyes.  I always hope that you, my readers, will find relatable truths in my unapologetically raw words.

Everything I write is written from a vulnerable part of me that I only share because I want others to know they aren't alone in the experiences they've gone through... the heartache, the pain, the ecstasy, the honesty, the growth, the life lessons.  We each have our own journey, but they are all connected because we share the common bond of being created by the Creator.
When you read my book, I hope you will find something relatable, something that will resonate with your own heart.  I hope you laugh, and in all honesty, I hope you will cry too.  Just remember that to feel is to be alive, to be human.  And I hope you feel so, so many things while reading this collection of poetry and prose.  And I hope it reminds you that you are alive.

So hey, after many, many tears, long nights of pouring my heart into this book, frustrating draft revisions, and impatient final's finally here.

I hope you snag a copy. <3

Post pictures of it on social medias and tag me!  I want to hear your thoughts and see everywhere this little piece of me ends up.

And one last thing...
Thank you.  Thank you so much for your support, your encouragement, and the part you play in my life.


  1. congratulations! I hope I can get my hands on a copy soon. I'd love to read it.

    also, what kind of publishing did you do for your projects? if you self-published, what company or source did you use? I've been toying with the idea of self-publishing a series of poems and photographs but wasnt sure the logistics of it. I'd love some advice!

  2. The cover art is amazing! I love the detail! I'll have to check it out!
