ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Nortina Simmons is a young writer who has been writing since the age of three, inspired by her songwriting, guitar-playing father. Her first “poem” was a ballad set to the melody he strummed on his guitar and the slightly off-tempo beat her little brother played on his tambourine. Today, she writes short stories and poetry. Her writing explores themes of religion, love, and the relationship between young and old.
