Having a genuine appreciation for word compositions, Sh'nette has been a poetess and storyteller since age nine. Her inspiration for creative writing comes from an ancient recipe of pure emotion: 2 cups Love; 1 cup Hate; half cup Confusion; forth cup Heartache; 2 tbsp Pain; a tsp each of Anger, Joy, Frustration, Understanding, Apathy, and Empathy; a spritz of Bitterness; and a dash of salt.

What to Expect
At any given open mic, the audience will be amused with Sh'nette's wit and word play. She uses vivid imagery and pulls the audience in with her direct interaction. Using few props on stage works well for her, but the audience always knows where the setting takes place.
Sh'nette has had an appreciation for the gift of writing since childhood and in her adult years began publishing both poetry and short stories. 'Elemental' is her second literary publication which took five years to complete. Her first, is 'The Promise.'
"How wonderful it is to have the gift of inscribing and be able to connect thoughts into cohesive narratives and harmonious compositions of words. I can finally put the pen down because I'm happy about what I wrote."
