This book I dedicate to my beloved husband Steven M. Neil because without him none of my dreams would have come true and my heart would still be haunting. We are living happily in Independence, Kansas with our dog “Maddy”.
"What could make a person become a poet? It wasn't my first idea, originally I wanted to be an archeologist specializing in Egyptology when I was in middle school I studied everything.
I could about the culture the history and even how to read hieroglyphs but for all my studies and hard work fate had a twist to throw into my well planned life, I developed seizures at the age of 14 which got worse when I turned 15.
Even after all my seizures I can still remember my love for myth and legends even if the rest should come back in pieces like a puzzle. I took a creative writing course in high school and that is when I found that I have a true spark for writing poetry, watched many friends graduate including my high school sweetheart but I kept working for my diploma until I received it in 2004. Now though my seizures are not controlled and none of my doctors know what causes them I write to keep the worries at bay and because I love to write.
If you are going through the same thing or just a health issue that you don't know how to cope with, you just need to focus and remember even the small dreams come true if you help them."
