Growing up in Houston, Texas, Annette began writing poetry at a very early age. Her ability to express herself in that form of writing led to her first book of poetry, One Heart to Another and later her second book of poetry, Another Heart to Another. Her work has been featured in many collections of poetry, published worldwide. Writing has always come naturally to her, so after she achieved her goal of writing her first book of poetry, Annette went on to write her first novel, Good Kid in Trouble. She plans to move on to different genres as she continues to do what she enjoys most. Her expressions of faith, joy, pain, and love are what encourage her to keep writing and connecting to people on different levels. Her writings appeal to the heart and soul of all readers.
