I was born November 23, 1979, I started writing poetry at the age of 13, for me it was a way to express myself. My first published poem was titled “Do You Love Me”, and it was published in a collection created by the National Library of Poetry. “The Masquerade Ball” is actual my second full collection of poems. My first collection was finished while I was still in high school, but it was never published. I have two wonderful little girls, they are the reason why I am here today, this book and every book to follow is for them to show them that you can forefill your dreams and accomplish anything you put your mind to. Currently I am attending Rutgers University, Newark Campus working on my BA in English with hopes to go straight into the Master’s Program for Creative Writing. I am also currently trying to build up my small business mainly dealing with Greeting Cards, but not limited to that.

This is a typical example of the antidance literature that was published during the nineteenth century. Although Brookes provides a weak defense of dancing, his final conclusion is that the large assemblies, indelicate dressing, "unwarrantable freedom of intercourse between the sexes," as well as uncontrolled excitement, leads to a thorough worldliness and, ultimately, to the forgetfulness of God. The manual was reissued in the 1890s under the title The modern dance.

Things at Rosewood are getting complicated for Brooklyn, just as she's starting to fit in.
