As an Urban Lifestyle Poet, her books can be found on Amazon, the Kindle Bookstore, Barnes & Noble, worldwide bookstores online and this website. These adult poetry books are non-fiction with a flare of fiction. Definitely, not for minors because of their story content. The illustrations in the books are quality stock photos from Dreamstime, Ari Burling Photography and the Author. These books are what she calls a new genre of poetry. This is why she calls them "Urban Lifestyle Poetry", which highlights people and events in urban neighborhoods. Hope you enjoy reading them, as much as she enjoyed writing them.

The Farragut Community is titled after Admiral Farragut a Navy Officer. Farragut has over 1300+ members in their Facebook group and growing. They get together on Old Timer's Day and celebrate the neighborhood newbies and old school folks. Sometimes they attend picnics (everyone brings a plate of food), private yacht cruise around the borough with fireworks and dancing on board, watch television together on the Jumbotron. This happens once a year in the summer of August for two or three days in a row. Often times the New York City Police Department barricade the streets to allow "Brooklynites" to come in from miles around and across the globe. We have an ole saying, "wherever you go, there's always someone from Brooklyn". A very close knit communities near the Brooklyn Navy Yard which contain several businesses.
