ArayaBlue is my pen name, real name is Linda Simms. I just started my own business (and I'm scared to death). My business is Araya Consultants & Services which is a virtual assistance company catering to corporations and small businesses. This is my first poetry book at which I am very proud of. Right now its more personal however, I am presently writing a suspense trilogy that will be completed shortly. I am also obtaining my degree online with Ashford University. Pending BA in Organizational Management. I plan to continue on to get my Masters in creative writing. Writing is my passion. Poetry lives within me. Words mean much to my soul. I hope one day to be an accomplished writer. It is going to take much work, but I must reach my goals in life. I have a hubby who I am crazy about and who I hope is crazy about me. We have grown children and one cat who swears she is human. Gracie keeps me calm when I'm out of control. I love to kick off my shoes and read. Ahhhhh!
