About Me:
I am Motivated by the desire to touch, inspire and heal souls of those whose eyes come in contact with my words. Having overcome many obstacles in my life, I started writing as a way of healing. Through sharing some of my work with a few close to me, I found that my words also inspired and motived them. Although we all had different exteriors, the pain, love, joy and fears we shared internally were similar in so many ways. It was a realization to us all that we were not alone in our battles and that keeping silent put a smile on our face but left the burden on our souls. This was the inspiration for my first book of poetry titled "Stepping Out of the Shadows" which will be available for purchase on 2/1/09 at and on 2/2/09 on

I lost my job in Human Resources/Marketing with a major retail company due to the economy and decided not to obtain another "job" but to work full-time on building my business and pursuing my dream. I am an author and have done several freelance jobs and been a contributing writer to local newspapers as well as had my poetry published in "ESSENCE" mgazine. I am currently in the process of assisting other writers/authors/poets in self-publishing their books through my company, Mirrors of Expression. Please visit my website regulary and watch out for the new titles to be available this spring!

Hi Joni,

my magazine From A Writers POV is looking for sponsers. We are looking for other business owners to partner with us in helping each other boost their sales and to help each other with marketing and advertising.

From A Writers POV is an online magazine for writers. We are mostly non-profit with small advertising fees. We are not looking to charge you or your business to advertise with our magazine, we simply want to "Swap" info and banners to help each other out.

I am putting together a spot throughout our magazine for sponsors. These spots will be permanent advertisement banners or badges letting our readers know that your business sponsers us. We would like the same thing in return. If you have a website and ning network, that would be great! We simply ask that you would place our banner on your website or ning network to let your customers know, we sponsor you. It's a fair trade.

I would also like to email you info about our business and what it provides. I would ask that you do the same and email me your info.

If this is something you would be interested in doing, please let me know. You can contact me directly at

I look forward to hearing from you!

Thanks, Dominique
