About the Author

Born in New Jersey and raised in Brooklyn, NY & New Jersey, I’m a Jersey girl at heart.  I spent my later years in life seated behind the canvas, painting, creating and in between, writing.  I discovered that putting feelings and thoughts to paper helped me solve life’s little conundrums.  It became the norm.  I had paper and pencil everywhere I went.

I live in the northern part of New Jersey with my husband and two children.  They inspire me to be me. My daughter handles my social media/book signings & my son is the cover artist for my books.

 

I currently have eight poetry books available on Amazon, with number 9 in the works, as well as, a work of fiction that has finally found its name.  I’m very fortunate to have a supportive ensemble of family and friends, who put up with crazy hours and my constant rhyming (yes, I rhyme without even knowing it).  And of course, this wonderful WordPress family.  I have met so many incredible people and am lucky enough to call them all friends.

You can follow my blog by subscribing via email so you’ll never miss a poem or post. (Just click the Follow My Journey link to your left) 🙂  My poems are sporadic and there is no set timeline for my posting.  Sometimes there are multiples during a given day, sometimes there are none.  My poetry reflects life, mostly my life, and I hope you find yourself somewhere in there, too.

I’m thrilled that I get the opportunity to share my thoughts about life, love and the world surrounding us.  Join me on my journey.” ~ Dorinda

    • Yes you can share it but only by linking from the blog post. I don’t allow copying and pasting. I hope you understand. You can share the poem using the Facebook button. And thank you. I have TM..I’m guessing it’s how you found me 🙂

  32. Hi Dorinda 🙂 I am contacting you to query if you should like to participate in a Blog Hop post with me? The Topic of the post is “Why I Write” and its quite simple. You write a post about why you write/ what inspires you, you invite another blogger whose writing you enjoy to participate, you spotlight their blog briefly in your post and then you post. I was invited by a friend and have written my post and would LOVE to spotlight Your Blog/You, should you feel inclined to accept? I will be posting mine tomorrow(hopefully) and then you’d have a week or so to post yours and pass the Hop forward.

    You are free to decline, of course. Do please let me know 🙂

    Thank You !!
