About

Breaking the Cycle is a series of fictional poems and short stories derived from true accounts of tragedy, loss and pain combined with stories of finding inner strength and conquering adversity in order to completely break the cycle of poverty. It is my hope that by sharing these stories it will give perspective to individuals who do not understand the plight of people growing up in impoverished communities and will give a constructive voice to those who identify with the topics but need an outlet to express their story. Breaking the Cycle graphically addresses issues of abuse, substance abuse, heart break, death and conversely love, hope, strength, spiritual and emotional growth. I believe that all stories will make a strong impact on the intended adult audience.
