T.J. Dorsey has had many accomplishments like meeting and dancing with Michelle Obama, having one of her poems in the Liberty of America Poetry’s book, and winning poetry contests at an
early age. She has completed her new book “Mixed Emotions": a collection of poetry that delves into the author’s bitter feelings of politics to embracing her emotions and culture, whether happy, depressed, prideful, or in love.

Dorsey writes, “When I die, I want to become a diamond. Throw my body in the ocean so explorers can find it. Announce my achievement to those who have prayed for my downfall, Announce my failures to those who proclaim me as the creator of all. When I die, I want the future to acknowledge my past…”

Published by Page Publishing, T.J. Dorsey’s riveting work exemplifies how just as there are words for every sentence, there are emotions for every feeling, and sometimes, those emotions are mixed.

If there was something Dorsey couldn’t live without, it would be paper and a pencil. As a student, these would be seen as mandatory items for class, but as a writer, she saw these as a way to escape reality. Ever since she was in second grade, poetry has been her life. Living in low-income ghetto, reality was often hard to face. Seeing drug dealers and cops roaming the streets, and hearing gunshots on your birthday each year really wasn’t a reality to look forward to. And with all these life-changing moments, the one thing that never changed was the pencil and paper she kept close.

Readers who wish to experience this inspiring work can purchase “Mixed Emotions" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
