ABOUT: My name is April Mae Cinq-Mars. I am married to a wonderful man. I have the world's best family. I have two beautiful nieces and one handsome nephew and another one they way, who I love more then life. I love to write poetry because it helps me deal with my feelings and it helps me make piece with myself. My first poem I wrote was one I wrote for my grandfather. Who I loved so very much, we was sick in the hospital with cancer and my poem to him was my way of telling him how much he was loved and to say good bye to him. I am so thankful that he was a live to here my cousin Rose read that poem to him before he moved on to heaven. After that, the poetry just poured from my heart and soul. At first I could only write a poem if I was upset or hurt. I guess it was my soul's way to help me feel better. After a few years, and with some help from other people whom I have met that love to write poetry. I learned to just write poetry without being hurt or upset. I have a few poems published in poetry anthology books which are published by Poetry.com. My first poem to be published was one I wrote to my husband. If you would like to see any of the poems that are published in their anthologies. You can by logging on to www. Poetry.com. I first found poetry.com one night while surfing the net for free poetry contests. I thought it would be fun to enter contests and to see if by chance I could win. It also helped me gain the courage I needed to pursue my dream to actually write my very own poetry manuscript and to mail it to major publishing companies. Which is what I am in the middle of doing now. It has taken me much longer to get the pages together because I have to work on it in my spare time and I have very little of that with working full time and trying to be a full time house wife at the same time. My husband and I do not have children yet, but we hope to one day. We have two lovable doggies. Mr. Pugsly (a pug) and Princess (a bulldog) they bring us much love and companionship and to my husband and myself they are our children. That's about it for now . However, keep on checking my news page on my site to see what's new with me in the future. You might see my name on a book in bookstores one day.Close Window
