In Public

"An intriguing collection of poetry that speaks the language of the determined, passionate woman of our time.
Strength and mystery in life and motherhood, coupled with the self-discovery necessary to the philosopher."

- Laura Lonshein Ludwig,
Poet (Sunglasses in the Rain), Playwright

"Takes on the life of a wife and mother living in a jagged cityscape and fashions quirky,
intelligent poems that are brief and candid, yet subtle,
and with an assured voice points to unvarnished homespun epiphanies."

- Leigh Harrison,
Medicinal Purposes Literary Review,
author of Tour de Farce
