James D. Sanders

From Columbus,Ohio by way of Saginaw, Michigan

I am a 30 year old Husband, son, brother and friend that loves to express my thoughts in words. I am a poet and an author, with one collection of poetry published, and two novels in the works. I have a true love and appreciation for any and all things that are artistically beautiful. I truly hope you enjoy what you read on my page

What inspires me?

I honestly pull inspiration from life. Whether it be experiences I've had, someone else has had, or even just things I might see in passing, I use them as motivation for writing. This allows me to not streamline what I write into a single category.

My best line

"See, no text book will ever define me, Yet I am the perfect opposition to the accepted belief Of what a young black man is supposed to be"~The Epitome "She dreams of being on the island of make-believe, Streaks of her tears form the waters of the seas"~Cover Girl "Like unexpected poison you infiltrated her mind, Maneuvering your way further into her system"~Heartbeat
