Reviews

I love the richness of the imagery conjured clearly but yet succinctly; these poems manage to reveal a great deal in a few carefully-honed lines. There is no redundant phrasing; everything more than pays its way. Death looms in each – past, present and anticipated demise.

 -Myfanwy Fox, Harts & Minds

A poet of everyday poignancy.

 -Alison Thumel, Poet

[Her] poems are wonderful with aesthetic depth and minimal, driving content.

-Charles Lee, Ghost Journal

A walking, talking little hardass bitch miracle.

Regina O’Connell, Poet’s mother
