“Life as We Know It and Other Poems” is the first published book by Arnold resident, Tabitha Kremesec.
Kremesec was Wednesday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
These poems are not the typical types of poems that one might usually anticipate.
These cover many topics, mostly associated with health, life and even a message of hope for those who have suicidal thoughts. The twenty-one poems talk about stress, our minds, troubles about the good and bad in life and the way the world is today. There are poems from the imagination that Tabitha Kremesec believes everyone can relate to – from teenagers to adults.
According to Kremesec, she has been writing poetry since she was a teenager and has saved her work over the years. She really delved into it and began thoughts of a book after suffering a broken leg.
According to her official biography, Kremesec was born in Nebraska. She has two brothers and two sisters. At age six, she moved to California with her mother, stepfather, and brothers. When she was thirteen, Tabitha moved back to Nebraska to live with her biological father. When that didn’t work out, she lived with her father’s sister. Tabitha began have difficulty dealing with everyday life. Her aunt placed her in a mental hospital where she was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. Tabitha began writing poetry.
After two years in Nebraska getting treatment, Tabitha moved back to California. Today, she is married and enjoys swimming, writing and caring for animals.
