“It is better to have your head in the clouds, and know where you are… than to breathe the clearer atmosphere below them, and think that you are in paradise”

-Henry David Thoreau

delicate doses, a book of poems is my latest compilation of poetry that lends to the simplicity in words to offer lasting impressions. The verses within its pages offer empowerment and courage from a woman’s perspective in the matters of love, loss and change.

Hashtag The Horizon, an anthology edited by Scott Christopher Beebe is now available, of which I’m honored to have two poetry pieces included. I along with fifty other writers were invited to contribute pieces that speak to anyone who has ever held onto hope for themselves, mankind, and good outcomes whether it be at the end of a war or first date.

This compilation is heartfelt, humorous, whimsical, terrifying, mysterious, multi-generational, -sexual identified, -cultural, and spiritual from fifty incredibly talented people showcasing a lovely, loving, masterful use of language in multitudinous genres such as horror, micro fiction, prose, mystery, LGBTQ, humor, and more represented in one little book with a big heart plus a whole lot of soul. -Beebe

“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.”

-Edgar Allan Poe
