Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
More poetry... no spoiler really. I want to go deeper into my own voice with some of the experiences of motherhood and really give of myself.
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...
Uhhhh.......me of course!! I love people that most everyone knows so why not use this spot to tell you that I'm worth your time to look at. I use end-rhym, which is not used much anymore. I use it because I, unlike a lot of people who think it's restrictive on creativity, I find it challenging! For me, all the poets I love and aspire to be like are end-rhyming poets, so I sort of learned the language over a period of time. It's a cool revival of an old artform, so at least give it a look!
This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
I love Mitch Albom books!!! He's so easy to read, he makes you feel and gives you shuch access that without even thinking you've finished his book. Plus he doesn't write big, long books so you can read them all in one night and still catch some z's.
