We got a chance to speak with Poetic Author, Dorinda Duclos, and learn a little bit about her love for writing poetry! Check it out!
How long have you been writing?
For as long as I can remember, although there was a time I stopped altogether, to raise my children. Don’t get me wrong. I have no regrets whatsoever. If I had to do it over again, I wouldn’t change anything. Watching them grow in front of me was/is, by far, the best experience of my life.
Where did your passion for poetry come from?
I was always inspired by the writings of the classic poets. Robert Frost, is by far, my favorite, followed by Edna St. Vincent Millay and Maya Angelou. Now, it’s nature and things of beauty that inspire me most. I often write about the seasonal changes, usually in Haiku.
Do you write anything other than poetry?
Yes. I also write short stories. I enjoy letting myself disappear in another place, or ride a comet through the stars. Like poetry, but a little bit more freely, I can send my imagination into the universe. In the heavens, anything is possible.
What were you doing before you started writing?
Oh, where do I begin? I was a pharmacy technician for 20+ years, after which I became a computer technician for a pharmaceutical computer company, and then I started my own business in the wedding industry, where I stayed for 15 years. Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it), I had to stop due to health issues
How many books do you currently have available for purchase?
I currently have 11 books available for purchase from my website. 8 of them are available on Amazon as eBooks. Number 12, 13 & 14 will be out later this year. I’m excited, as two of them will complete the four Seasons Haiku book series!
