Trina's Photo

Trina Williams-Emigh is a wife and mother, originally from New Orleans, now residing in Iowa City, Iowa. She has been writing her thoughts down since she was 15, it allowed her to express herself when there was no one around to listen. Through the years her thoughts have been less about herself and more about people in general.

She has written volumes of poetry and only within the last 10 years have she decided to put them into collections of books that she has stored on disk. Trina says "I truly enjoy writing, and having someone read some of what I have written is very special to me."

You can contact Trina via e-mail at or by sending an e-mail to TimBookTu and it will be forwarded.
