Mission: To share the Lord and His Word through poetry. 


My Author's Site: www.doriselainerhymes.com


Am a published poetry author; born and raised in Georgia, United States. Have an education of Double B.A. and half a master’s acquired late in life in 2012. Am a bit shy and somewhat reserved socially; thus I found poetry a promising outlet for expression. In badly needing to express myself, I feel in love with rhyming poetry finding that style be to my creative liking. Due having a couple of challenging, however notably informative, experiences on social media brought my first two-book collection Social Media Musings, "Social I, Not & Not I, But I Am". It was very hard to get through, thus that collection was born out of those emotional experiences. Additionally learned I like writing rhyming poetry. Discovered this type of poetry is out and/or considered non-sense poetry. Thus, wrote a two-book collection, The Rhyme It Out Project!, where I show just about any form can rhyme and make sense. Even created my own rhyming form. Am a Christian in love with the Lord that fell in love with rhyming poetry; thus, now I both encourage rhyming poetry and write Christian rhyming poetry. Have completed the first book "I Am Sowed" in a new two book collection Growing Strong In The Lord Poetry and working on Part Two "Words of Inspiration" in my endeavor of promoting the Lord through rhyming poetry. My poetry writing career now takes on the light of mostly Christian poetry due that being where my heart now resides. However, will continue  in my effort of promoting rhyming poetry. You can see both these endeavors on my blogs. Am a Front Desk Associate at a local hotel. Currently my books are being published via KDP/Amazon. Through a great deal of learning and trail and error, even this objective was a challenge; however, I believe I finally got it right. Except am still challenged with proper formatting of eBooks; please bare with on that. Most my work is done in a small work space adjacent to my bedroom and occasionally do work on my laptop in the comfort of my bed. I am not looking for fame and glory, nor expecting any amount of income from this endeavor; simply want to, express my love for the Lord and His Word through poetry and my love for the art of rhyming poetry. Other than work I spend my time reading and watching Christian material, studying God’s word, occasional watch a good movie and listen to country music. Love nature and everything it has to offer. Absolutely happy with my life in serving the Lord the best I can and with my writing endeavors I believe He’s graced me with the ability to do. You may notice, no last name. Reason being, current last name is ex-married last name; which, I prefer not to use. And, my maiden name I have not been called since an older teen. Thus, simply Doris Elaine. A Christian that loves the Lord and hopes to express this Love in encouraging others through my poetry.
