Let me introduce myself. My name is La Kata E.K. and I am a poet. I am an author. I am an avid reader. I am a constant writer. I am a freelance proofreader and editor. Most importantly, I am someone that believes that beauty can be found within the ugliest of
I have been reading for as far back as I can remember

I began writing poetry when I was 13 years old and
I've been writing poetry ever since. Dr. Seuss’ rhyme scheme and Maya
Angelou’s personal experiences are what inspired me to write the way

up a bit but there’s still that “Dr. Seuss” within me. Writing
was, and still is, a form of therapy for me. It gives me clarity when I
can't seem to find clarity anywhere else. I feel that writing is a
healthy form of expression and that all should indulge in it
occasionally. It allows me to express myself in a way that cannot be
controlled or restricted by anyone. I feel that everyone should be able
to express themselves in one form or another; as long as it's legal
anyway. If more people were able to get their feelings out somehow, then
maybe the world would be a little bit of a better place to live.
I am currently working on a series of educational children's poetry books.
In January, I began doing author interviews in my blog. After submerging myself completely within the indie writing community, I began learning about genres I had never heard of before. I was also introduced to so many authors, each with their own story to tell. Finding myself wanting to learn more about other authors, I decided that interviewing them would be the way to do so. If you're interested in learning about other authors, you can find their interviews at Authors in the Spotlight.
