I am so sorry for the delay in Fairy Tale Fridays. Sickness and all around busyness has been running me ragged, but I am going to do something special to make up for it. This weekend you will get THREE different naughty Fairy Tales. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday I will be featuring different authors each day and we even have out first author duo. Stayed tuned for some seriously naughty fun.
What a better way to start than with my buddy La Kata. This girl is amazing you guys. So let’s give her a warm welcome, shall we?
Let me introduce myself. My name is La Kata A. Epps-Kling (La Kata E.K.) and I am a poet. I am an avid reader. I am a constant writer. I am a freelance proofreader. Most importantly, I am someone that believes that beauty can be found within the ugliest of places.
I have been reading for as far back as I can remember and that was about the age of 5. The first book that I remember owning (and still do) is Dr. Seuss’ “The Cat in the Hat”. Reading is a form of adventure for me. No matter what is going on in my life, I know that when I submerge myself into the pages of a book, an interesting journey awaits me!
I began writing poetry when I was 13 years old and I’ve been writing poetry ever since. Dr. Seuss’ rhyme scheme and Maya Angelou’s personal experiences are what inspired me to write the way that I do. However, as time has passed, I have changed my writing style up a bit but there’s still that “Dr. Seuss” within me.
Writing was, and still is, a form of therapy for me. It gives me clarity when I can’t seem to find clarity anywhere else. I feel that writing is a healthy form of expression and that all should indulge in it occasionally. It allows me to express myself in a way that cannot be controlled or restricted by anyone. I feel that everyone should be able to express themselves in one form or another; as long as it’s legal anyway. If more people were able to get their feelings out somehow, then maybe the world would be a little bit of a better place to live.
I recently finished my first novella and I am currently working on a series of educational children’s poetry books.
