"They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul, so what
happens when the person's eyes are unavailable to look into? You read
their words." - La Kata E.K.
Let me introduce myself. My name is La Kata E.K. and I am a poet. I am a multi-published author. I am an avid reader. I am a constant writer. I am a freelance proofreader and editor. I am a book reviewer. 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
and that was about the age of 5. The first book that I remember owning
(and still do) is Dr. Seuss' "The Cat in the Hat". Reading is a form of

I've been writing poetry ever since. Dr. Seuss’ rhyme scheme and Maya

I find myself writing within various genres; no one genre is off limits

maybe the world would be a little bit of a better place to live.
I am never not writing and right now, even though I am taking a break from being an active author, I will still remain an active poet.
