what it's actually like to write a book.

somehow, I managed to publish two poetry books in one year: my first in April 2017, and my second in September 2017. writing has always been my favorite thing to do, so making new content doesn't always feel like I'm "working". I'm currently in the process of collection three, which is set for 2018.

you can check out book one, Roses in SoHo here. book two, This Second Layer, is available here.

I've met writers similar to me, where they're constantly writing and absolutely love it. a few well-known authors, however, feel like "making a job out of poetry" takes the fun away. it does take a lot of hard work to get your name out there, to invest hours and hours into your new material, and molding your life around your poetry.
