My name is Alexis, and I am originally from Florida. I’ve lived and worked abroad as a teacher from 2009 to 2019. Currently, I am based in Oman with my husband (who works full-time as a teacher) and my dog (who’s currently unemployed).

I am an avid reader and author-in-progress who is trying to gain a readership through social media, trying to write books and trying to cultivate a life where reading, writing, and connecting with fellow lovers of books and authors is my main profession. Not sure how any of that is going to work out, but I’m in the process of working towards those goals, and as best I can, I try to maintain faith and hope that everything will work out eventually if I just stay honest, keep growing and keep moving forward.

On this site you’ll have access to a selection of my original poetry as well as a collection of my favorite poems of all time. I’m also mulling over whether or not I’ll start a weekly blog about all things related to writing (and maybe a few tidbits about the things I love reading).
