Writing has always been Queanna Mae’s escape from reality. It has helped her get through life and depression. She has always been afraid to trust anyone with her feelings and has always had a hard time expressing herself through speaking, so she always had her journal to confide in and turn to.
Her mother is legally blind and always asks Queanna Mae to write her stories and read them to her. She is ready to share her deepest passion with the world in hopes that if she can help even one person who has been in her shoes, and felt there was no way out or no one there or no way to turn, there's hope and you are not alone.
