Welcome to my website.
I’m Andrea Carter, former educational leader, turned author. I’m elated to announce that my debut poetic journal, the Book of “R”: Woman Thou Are will be published on 27 July 2019. A modern-day Balm in Gilead, it’s an empowering book of poems that ministers to the wounded souls and brokenhearted.
As a mother-of-three based in the Midwest, I have been writing as a hobby since my elementary school days. I decided to take my writing to the next level at the nudging of a few friends. Writing poetry for people as favors or for special occasions is one of my favorite pastimes. I never dreamed that one day I would publish a book. I’m excited to share my writings with the world. I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I enjoyed writing it for you.
Your support has meant everything to me. I’m so grateful, and I look forward to this journey of growth and happiness together. If I could leave you with a few nuggets that helped me along my journey they would be to go after your dreams as if your life depends upon it because it does. Show up to each new day as the best version of yourself. Prepare today for a better tomorrow. Live in the moment. Be present and walk in you promise. To our core and beyond.
In agape love,
The Book of “R”: WOMAN THOU ARE
FROM SURVIVING TO THRIVING
