About Me

About the Author:

I am a Covington, Louisiana Poet, Author, Mask Maker. I also teach classes in Altered Books, Journaling, and Family Heritage Scrap-booking Instructor. I have a B.A. in Mass Communications with specialty in public relations from Nicholls State University, Class of 2000. My favorite things are comic books, hats, fresh notebooks, and books filled with new words. I love shiny red apples that crack smartly as you bite into them. The most challenging thing I have attempted is trying to teach myself how to  read and write in Spanish, by reading the Spanish edition of Twilight.

Employed as Department Manager at Barnes and Noble for nine years and craft instructor at all the St. Tammany Libraries. A working member of the Northshore Literary Society and a book reviewer with an online blog Anna Marie’s Corner; Former Editor of Blood Orange Zine. I help organized functions for the Jane Austen Literary Society of Mandeville, Louisiana, Poet’s Alive in Covington, Louisiana, Women’s Book Salons and various writer’s groups. Especially love working and helping establishing book fairs for children at all the Mandeville and Covington, Louisiana area schools. A member of Comic Book Legal Defense Fund
