About Me

I am a writer and poet from the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. My writing is deeply rooted in and inspired by the folklore and culture of Appalachia. I love to explore and celebrate the region through lyrical poetry and folk lyrics. 

My Ethos

Coming from a non-fiction background, I love how poetry and creative writing have opened my ability to express thoughts and emotions and tell stories. 

Genuine poetry can communicate before it is understood.

T.S. Eliot
