Born in Columbia, Maryand, Stephanie Hiteshew has been writing poetry since age 11. She has numerous poems published in the U.S. and overseas, including an Audio Sound Collage 'Victim Of Mistaken Identity' with MaryMark Recordings 2004. During her younger years, she spent time away from home and learned the hard way what freedom is. Having Tourette Syndrome and Tardive Dystonia: Two Neurological movement disorders; has caused her to have to overcome many obstacles and struggle to maintain in a society unprepared for her. Now, at age 26, this is her account, her legacy, of how she came to be who she is today; far from the homelessness and lost freedoms she had years before. This is her release of the mayhem, the rage, she experienced during those turbulent times; in seventy-four fast paced poems.
