April Higney

A love for writing poetry for many years. Main concepts are based upon past/present/future struggles & issues of life and relationships, love and family. I am strongly passionate about entwining my heart & soul in these words. To some it may connect, others it may not. I enjoy the in-depth romance writing. Currently working on a poetic novel. I hope you find something in my writing that stirs your heart as it does mine.
