A poet once said that poetry and beauty are born from pain…I believe this, because I’ve lived this. A brain aneurysm and massive stroke changed my life, causing me to lose verbal and physical function for many years. As an AVM (Arteriovenous Malformation) survivor, skin cancer survivor, and being legally blind, it would’ve been easy to give up and quit. Instead, I became a fighter and began living life to its fullest, never taking anything for granted.
I’ve decided to write a collection of poetry to express the words that I’ve held in my heart and soul all these years. This collection expresses the way I feel and how I view life, love, friendship, sadness, and loss. I’m a new and improved woman, life has taught me so many lessons, and now is the time to share what I’ve learned with the world–this is A Piece of Me.

All Jacey Steele’s life, she’s focused on one thing: gymnastics. After missing the Olympic team because of injury, and being shut out by her ‘winning is everything’ father, she’s built a career as a top notch, award-winning coach. When a serious student injury propels her to the outside of the gymnastics world, she finds herself broke and alone – until a bequest from a mysterious and unknown aunt takes her on an unexpected journey. Who was Aunt Winnie, and what does the equally mysterious and unknown Mr. Boudreaux have to do with it?
Army veteran, Cole Boudreaux, has returned home a hero to Cardinal Point, Texas, but a few things went wrong with his homecoming. His fiancée cut him loose, and he lost his position as a police officer because a wartime injury left him nearly deaf. Then, the woman who was like a mother to him dies suddenly. Cole knows God has a plan, and if he could settle Winnie’s estate and grow his budding security business, he just might figure out what it is. Winnie’s niece is not making it easy. She’s rolled into town with a ton of baggage and secrets she’s not willing to share. Why is Jacey so distant, and why is she so determined to not let him in?
