The Infinite Charm
of Firefly Glow
born (the youngest of four children) in 1960, in Jersey City. New
Jersey has been my home for most of my life.
My first attempts at poetry blossomed when I was in 7th grade. Words
fascinated me and poetry became my niche.
I attended college at Rowan University. While in college, I hosted a
community affairs radio show; edited the literary magazine Avant;
and was a featured writer in most of the university's major
publications. During my senior year, I received the Ester Bovard
Medallion for excellence in creative writing.
I married Charles Shields in 1987. In 1991, I was blessed with the
birth of my daughter, Desiree Angelique.
The constants in my life have been poetry, and a passionate desire
to be a positive influence. I have learned that even under the worst
circumstances, the human spirit soars in search of hope, truth and
love. If that sounds overly romantic, I make no apology.
May you know kindness, fortune and love for all of your days, and
may you always be touched by the Infinite Charm Of Firefly Glow.
