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
