About the Author

Hello, my name is Saundra, aka StaR (my initials). I am a registered nurse, registered dietitian nutritionist, and member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (with a master’s degree from NYU). I am also a certified image consultant, an Ordained Minister, and an Advanced Toast Master. I am a multi-award-winning published poet; Poet of the Month, Poet of the Year, and Best Poet for ten years are some. Despite having lifelong dyslexia, I am in the PoetryFest Hall of Fame. I have published three books; PTSD: Putting the Story Down is one of them for which I have done three radio interviews Kate Delaney [America Tonight], Dr. Angela Butts Chester [Spark radio]) and Susan Sherayko (Rebuilding Your Life Radio; Author and Producer) Living with multiple sclerosis, fibromyalgia, sciatica, and lifelong dyslexia, I have found some relief and comfort in writing poetry. I have been married to my Italian- American husband, Peter Tesoriere (also a registered nurse), for twenty-five years.
