Vanessa Potts

I grew up in the UK and studied Literature at University. I have worked in the corporate world most of my adult life and writing for me is a way to step out of that mode and let my creative side free. It is a constant work in progress but I have most recently focused my skills on poetry with an interest in the smaller moments in life that help define us.
