Meet the Creator

Hi! I’m Ann Garcia, Ph.D., a poet/ writer/ scientist with a creative drive that busts the box and a passion for poetry and prose. I established River Blossoms Press (RB Press), my greatest creative endeavor, to experience the reward of publishing books that I create.

Because the publishing industry is a big business, many beautiful written works will never be printed simply because they aren’t expected to sell. This is where RB Press diverges from the worn path.

River Blossoms Press is a publishing house founded for artistic expression.

If you’d like to watch this blossom unfold, please follow the RB Press Blog and me, Ann Garcia (@solaceinraindrops), on Instagram.

But here’s a little-known fact: My current IG poetry account, @solaceinraindrops, which I started on September 5, […]

Years of consideration went into my response to this question, and I finally have my answer.  One important thing to understand about me is that I never intended to call myself a poet or writer. Although I enjoyed writing poems and short stories as a teen, I stopped writing creatively when I entered college and […]
