Going for #3!

Most people call me Toni (and every time I say it since I saw the movie Burnt, I chuckle. Little Toni. I’m barely 5 feet). I’ve been writing since I was in elementary school but started poetry at 14 years old. I’m an Army veteran and wish I was still wearing the uniform. They were some of the best years of my life and led me to meeting my husband. I own a cyber security company which keeps me busy full time. I adore animals and realized I’m a crazy cat lady only 6 years ago when I rescued 5 kittens who were abandoned in my neighborhood. I love pizza, French fries, Puerto Rican food (I’m Puerto Rican), boston creme donuts, and, ironically, working out. I published my first book in 2013 and am releasing the second book later this year. I’m nervous again but looking forward to creating the beginnings of a third poetry collection. I will have a buddy this time around who plans to stick with me for the full 24 hours. And we both LOVE coffee! See you all Saturday on the blog!  🙂 – Toni
