I am a 29 year old United States Orphan who started professional creative writing in 1995 at the age of 12. I am also a single mother of two beautiful girls, ages 10-Marcella Anatathia and 2-Marianna Rochelle. I was under the custody of Department of Social Services from 12 years old until 18 years old, which is when I was released on the streets homeless and pregnant by a convicted sexual offender.
I hope that this book will begin to touch the thousands of other United States Orphans and children housed in the Social Services system who may or may not believe in themselves. To them and my children, I dedicate this book.
