About Me

Writing means different things to me. I'm a storyteller, a book editor, and a songwriter. For me, it's like breathing.

Cliffside View

Painting by JoAnne, Cliffside View


My sun dried hands clutch my heart of dreams.

I look beyond my longing,

forsaking lustful means.

Consumed by sins of desires,

I escape insanity by releasing unblemished charms.

Soothing my sweet youthful soul,

I reject the lust, but still hold on.

Without dwelling on material things,

I release soulful thoughts within.

Path To Heaven

Painting by JoAnne, Path to Heaven


Tears of a child, is a knife through the heart.

They try so hard, with all their might.

With tender minds and a soft touch,

their innocent love is never enough.

Through the years, and past the pain,

pride and hope is their greatest gain.

The smile of a child and the joy they bring,

is one of life’s most precious things.
