About the writer

I’ve enjoyed writing poetry as long as I can remember. For me, writing is a way to process feelings, capture memories and document life’s important and special moments. After “escaping” from a successful and demanding career in the corporate world, I began to focus more on this God-given talent of mine. My mother was also a writer and when she died, my writing proved to be therapeutic. I took poetry classes and joined a writing group. My poems are published in numerous regional and a few national publications and I am currently working on publishing my own book of poetry. I have written hundreds of poems, many written as gifts for loved ones to commemorate special occasions. Some were poems about people I didn’t even know! These were “commissioned” by friends who knew that if they gave me the details, I could craft a personalized poem or tribute to creatively express their feelings. Those experiences fulfilled me…especially when hearing how much the poem was enjoyed by the recipient. That’s why I started my new career: Second Verse Poetry ~ Custom Poems, Tributes and Speeches. I would love to help you express your feelings in writing and/or create a unique gift for a special person in your life.

Why is payment required up front? Creating a personalized poem requires concentrated effort, time, inspiration and creativity…and once I send out a draft or completed poem, I can’t take it back if a customer refuses to pay. That’s why I guarantee that I will keep working until you are satisfied. I am a Christian and I take pride in my work. I value your trust and I want you to be happy enough to tell others about my services! If you are still not convinced, please call me and let’s get acquainted.
