About Danielle Wise Baxter
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoMy name is Danielle Wise Baxter, (RED) I was born 4-6-1971, in Coushatta, La. I am a Christian, the oldest of 4 with 4 children of my own. Married since I was 17 to the same man. I am a narrative writer, and see things from a different light than most. My work is original to who I am. You will find I am old fashioned. Half Cherokee well 42.92 %. I have no idea why that number. lol My DNA allows for prose form in Native American fashion (turtle and the hare). So I am never short for imagery. Please keep in mind I write children's books, so my work will be geared in that direction (mostly). Calico Fox Aka Foxy is a new series in my children's books. I also have a eidetic memory. I am here to relax or rant. Just to get things off my mind. I may not use form or it be a poem, just me rambling but that's what "I" paid for. If it looks long and you don't like long, don't read . If you start reading and do not like it just stop and move on. I do not want your rewrite, suggestions for my real poetry are awesome. Real poets and writers will know what is real, if not pass it up. No need to comment poorly.

I am constantly trying to overcome my past. I hear so are we all, so in saying that it doesn't help me in my personal fall. I am not much of a poet, but have used it to help me heal a shattered heart and mind. I am a survivor of so many things. I would even have to say the strongest woman I have ever met. NOT bragging but honest. I do not break down, yet from time to time I may lash out in pain like a mad snake. As long as you do not scare the poo out of me or step on me I just sit and sun.

I am in the process of getting 2 series of books going, complete with coloring books and 2 books, one of some nature poems and another for children called When God Makes Changes. Being a child who primarily cared for herself, I understand how change freaks them out. I do not do change well as an adult. It is a complete loss of control, and I pray my book helps them see change can be wonderful.

I am nearing an empty nest 41 years old. Oh I am so happy to be old now. I would not go back to hot and sexy for anything. I like soft and comfy. lol If you see a poem and I have it listed wrong please let me know, I just write. I have no training. Also I deal with dyslexia and Ms plus Lyme. Wow what more can I endure. lol I am a horse woman, but in my age seem to be more of a ground person. I was hit by a diesel truck and trying to get over that. Well I hope to make friends. I am rambling sorry.

    I have to agree with Ruben. I felt at my best when I turned 40. I would love to hit that decade again. Anyway, welcome. i am just learning as well to write anything but free verse or haiku.
