Author's Bio

Jennifer-Leigh Oprihory (a.k.a. Phoenix) is a kalideoscope of a girl. A hybrid cross between lover, fighter, activist, caffeine-junkie, journalist, hippie, poet, and human, she empties her head by trapping dreams in words and passing them off as poetry. If you are reading this, then chances are, she's proven to be successful in the endeavor. Jennifer is ready and willing to put her heart on the line if it makes you feel happier in your own skin. www.phoenixpoet.info.
