I’m happy to announce my second collection of poetry, Moonpies & Naugahyde: A Childhood Survived, is now available!!
Fabulous watercolor paintings by Georgiann Carlson accompany my poems throughout, creating a book I am extremely proud of!
Since October is National Domestic Violence Awareness month, I can think of no better time to release it.
3 options available now on Amazon:
Note the 3 “versions” are not all linking up on Amazon correctly so I am providing the individual links below each option 🙂
1-Full Color Edition: Watercolor Illustrations presented in Full Color
This is the way this collection is meant to be experienced!
2-Black & White Edition: Watercolor Illustrations presented in Greyscale
(Producing the book in full color made it a little pricey so offering this B&W option)
3-Ebook for your Kindle, iPad, etc.
Billy was an angry man
he hated his own life
but instead of making changes
he took it out on his children & his wife
his hands, his belt, a wooden spoon;
anything in reach would do
and after every vicious assault
he made sure they knew it was their fault
Chicago Botanic Garden: Picture by Gigi See Original
she possesses softness and beauty
and remembers to hold them tightly
surrounding herself with love
and enveloping her soul with kindness
because while you should always be kind to others
it is equally important to be kind to yourself
and sometimes harder to do
