Q&A

What inspired you to write this book?

Most of these poems were written as daily musings and observations of the world. Later I would revisit them and rewrite, tweak or leave them as they began. When I started to look at my work as a whole I saw some themes emerge. Eventually I decided to put this collection together.

What do you hope readers will get from reading your book?

I hope my readers will have their own personal responses to these poems and find some pleasure and comfort in the life-affirming nature of my words.

Why should someone buy your book?

This is a great book to sit and read cover to cover on a rainy day or to have by your bed and read a poem each morning. It is a little piece of creativity to carry around with you and dip into when you feel like a change of pace.
