You’ve built the foundation of who you are by the age of six “BASE” Book 1 of a poetry collection based on a true story. This cultural tale moves through the mind of a young inner-city girl and creatively explores her world before the age of six.

BASE is the foundation, the first six years on which our lives are built. Asking you to examine what has shaped you. Opening your eyes to better understand your current choices and mind set, allowing you to reflect on who you truly are versus who you pretend to be.
