Written in 5-7-5 haiku form, Pushing 50 is the culmination of over three years of happenings in the life of a middle-aged woman who shares her experiences and all the joys and tribulations that go along with them.
These short poems are familiar and relatable––sometimes sad, sometimes funny, they always speak in some way to the human condition, particularly the emotional and physical changes that happen to most women as they traverse their late forties. This book also touches on memories of key events related to our collective mortality.
What Worlds and Moons is a series of prose poems and short fictions that reveal an underlying strangeness in otherwise ordinary moments of daily life. These pieces work on multiple levels, at once deeply personal, while at the same time aware of and engaged in the objective, impersonal world.
The characters and voices in this collection are diverse and unique, each a window on a world both routine and mystical at the same time – the death of a dog, an encounter with a stray cat, a waitress leaving work – mundane scenes that take on surprising hues, sometimes unexpectedly madcap, sometimes dark, sometimes both.
Vaulted Skies is a book of snapshots focusing on the brief thoughts and glimpses that make up the “everyday-ness” of life.
Small hopes, small fears, small failures, little victories—threaded together—are the real journeys taken by women, men, children toward whatever heaven they hope for or whatever hell they dread.
