This collection is the culmination of twelve years of work. I have been a writer for as long as I can remember, but have never put together a collection of work with any real intention to publish them. I’ve published small works on various websites through contests, although any attempt to use social media to publish my work has gone largely unused. Even now, with these pieces published, I am still very unhappy with them. I feel as though there will always be better words, better placement, and maybe even a better time, but, if not now, after all these years, when?
