Book Review: FREEFALL: A Divine Comedy

“Those years were essential and cataclysmic, more so than the women had realized at the time. They can’t shake the influence, having come of age in the ’60’s, just as they’re coming of age now in their sixties. At the same time, they’re entering another new age, promising even more upheaval than the ’60s, and they’ll have participated in both eras. They’re being pulled in both directions simultaneously, one foot in each world.”

Book Review: THE PROCESS OF FRAYING

“This is the very reason that some lives end seemingly early and by their own hands because Mother Nature doesn’t understand that a personage can out-age a body. It is the reason that someone unwell can look so very vibrant on the outside, giving no indication that death lurks around the corner. Souls saturated in sickness, negativity, and ill-thoughts cannot weather the years well.”

This I Know Paperback Release Coming Soon

“Mama says how I was born is how I live, my thoughts racing faster than what I know what to do with them. She claims I came hurling into the world screaming bloody murder as if I were trying to raise the dead. And then she gets a faraway look that feels as if someone has pulled the scenery from the room and you’re left standing in the dark with no walls and no ceiling.”
