Karrine Steffans has been on an incredible journey since birth. Infamous for chronicling her turmultuous youth, her questionable life choices, and her rise as a New York Times and international best selling author, this cultural icon, this vixen, started with prose. Writing since the age of five, Steffans was inspired when discovering Edgar Allan Poe at that impressionable age. Motivated by her grandfather, later that year, she aimed for the coveted New York Times best sellers list. Twenty years later, she made it and it all started with poetry. In this booklet, the author shares some of her autobiographical poetry, once lost, and the origin of the inspiration to share them.
