Author Statement

I have been writing for as long as I can remember. I used to write short stories and create my own songs as a kid as I harboured a secret dream to be a singer. In reality, I shouldn't even be allowed to karaoke.  I remember sitting on an airplane at 16 years old, alone, flying from Ontario to Vancouver when I decided to put pen to paper in the form of poetry.  Instantly I was hooked on articulating myself through the written word.


"Broken Bottles & Whiskey Stained Hearts is a collection of poems that delve into the deep roots of heartbreak, and the vices we use to cure them. Written from pure emotion and experience, it will dig at your heartstrings and your mind."
