Celebrating good news!

When I was 21 and my father died, I stopped writing for 3 years. The DSM-5TR probably has a thing or two to say about how I handled my grief back then, but my writing block is all that’s relevant now.

Because 19 years later, when my mother died, I fairly bled poems. If you were reading my blog then, you might remember the writing and processing I was doing here.

Which leads to now, and my new book! Leave No Wake, published by Pine Row Press, is officially launched into the world!

I poured so much grief into these poems, but the days turned as they must, and my poems took different directions with them—while my parents are the prevailing spirits behind this collection, their lives and love guided me as much as their deaths, and I hope these poems reflect that.

If you’re so moved, you can read more about Leave No Wake or purchase it here, and check out the readings I’m doing while you’re at it. And if you do read it, please consider leaving a bit of a wake yourself, by leaving a review on Amazon or Goodreads. By such means can my poems find new readers. And finally, if you’ve ordered Leave No Wake and would like an autographed bookplate for your copy, just drop me a line with your address!

Thank you!

  1. Congratulations on your new book. It was very nice to hear news from you. I hope your book meets with great success. I had a dream about you not that long ago. I always try to call people or write to them when I have a dream about them. A few days ago I had a dream about my brother who passed away 30 years ago. The dream was very real and he was 17 or 18 years old, and I was a bit older. Sometimes I wonder how it is possible for your brain to relive the past like it is happening right now with no hint that it is only a dream. Looking forward to reading your poems. ——G
