Who Am I?

My name is Desiree and if you’ve made it here, I want to start off by saying thank you. Writing has been an important part of my life from a young age. It’s part of my identity and its one of my biggest passions.

My inspiration comes from a variety of sources: literature, music, art, movies, photography, and life experiences. My own work, no matter where it is derived from, is always personal. I believe that my strongest pieces have come from a deep, emotional space. If there is no heart in it, it is not worth writing down.

I have no dreams of grandeur or to be even be “famous”, but I do hope for my work to reach as many people as possible. The greatest accomplishment I can ever hope to achieve, is to touch others through my words. Whether they are met with intrigue, relatability, shock, horror, laughter, if my words can elicit a reaction, I have met my goal.

Thank you for reading.
