I have physical limitations and have dysarthria.
From an early age, I endured sexual abuse,
arrogance and ignorant discrimination against me.
To cushion myself against the judgements of other
people, I protected myself by creating an invisible
shield around me. I could not relate to anyone and
felt very lonely and isolated. In my adolescent years,
I accidentally discovered I could write poems. I started
writing poetry as a way to express myself
without struggling to get the words out. My thoughts
could now be heard as my flawless voice, and I could
speak without embarrassment. I felt and still feel
“free” when writing poetry and I found my perfect voice.
My poetry reflects my responses to harmful experiences,
unfair decision-making and the struggles of romantic
relationships for a physically challenged woman. My
struggles are not unlike physically-abled women except
they are amplified by my increased vulnerability. I think
you will find my poetry easy reading expressing with
words the emotions of the highs and lows of life.

A female heart (photo attached) sitting in her wheelchair in the centre of the Australian Outback. It’s all bare around her. Her arms & legs are tied to her wheelchair. Tears are rolling down her cheeks. She’s facing the reader. She’s being raped by an able-body male heart.
(I require the cover to be confronting, but not offending). The font style (which includes the title, subtitle and the author's name) will be Sans-serif. The title should be capitalised and centre-aligned. The size will be between 16-18. For the subtitle (which should be direct underneath the title, but not obstructing the imagery) a more subdued 13-14 font size will be preferable. The author's name and illustrator's name shall be underneath the imagery. The recommendable size between 11-13 please. The style of the imagery must be descriptive. I want the reader to know what my ebook is all about. The font colors should be bright on (if possible) a light background.
