Q&A with Natalie:
MT: What is the theme of your poem?
Natalie: My poems are about love and relationships, and I hope that they support people in creating relationships that are free of violence and judgement.
MT: How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?
Natalie: That’s difficult to say because each person will relate to the poems in a different way. I’d be very grateful if my poems gave people hope and inspiration.
MT: Do you have a favorite poet?
Natalie: I love Rumi.
MT: How long have you been writing poetry?
Natalie: I never had the intention to write poetry. It just happened. Two years ago, I started to express my ideas in poetry. It took me a year until I dared to share it with other people and they encouraged me to publish them.
MT: Do you write other works? Scripts? Short Stories? Etc…?
Natalie: I have a blog and write healing stories. I also wrote a memoir, A Brave, True Story, which is available on amazon.com and amazon.ca.
MT: What is your passion in life?
Natalie: My passion is to help people heal and create loving and nurturing relationships that are free of violence and judgement.
