Kristen Mackenzie has always dreamed of being an author and poet. Ever since she was a young girl, she spent hours daydreaming about being published. She wrote this collection within the span of three years. Starting in 2018, when she just entered year 12, and then completing her last poems in 2020. When it comes to poetry, Mackenzie tends to use it as a diary, a way to express past and current emotions. Her biggest dream is to reach her readers with her writing, the same way her favourite authors and poets have done for her.
