I am sooo excited to have you.
My name is Aundriel Washington, founder of the Realm of Writes Blog, mother of six and grandmother! I have three beautiful daughters and three handsome sons, one of whom is autistic. Additionally, this October will mark my husband and my 21st anniversary.
I am a woman with many things after my own heart. I love children, so of course, I work with them as a Special Education teacher. I enjoy the collaborative efforts that are involved in working with the students, parents, and classroom teachers.
As a woman diagnosed with clinically resistant depression, I spend a lot of time and money on my diagnosis. I also spend a lot of time researching it. Mental health is almost taboo in the African American community, so spending time spreading the word about the importance of support and suicide prevention matters.
My favorite pastime is spent writing. As a child, I spent a lot of time in fantasy worlds to escape abuse, drugs, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and the loss of my parents. Currently, I have two published books, “Palera Dawn,” and “Dawn of the Dragon.”
I love animals, specifically dogs (as you can see!) and mythical creatures, my favorite being dragons. Traveling is high on my list of things to do.
I am still thinking about my blog. I will focus on writing — quotes from my books and inspirational articles. But I also want room for mental health and even dragons!
