In the author’s words, “The best way to describe my poetry is: I write about reality—not always with a happy ending—just real life. Only when you unlock early childhood memories and let go of excess baggage will true healing begin. My poetry is about such healing. My poetry is about swimming above the rain. Thanks to family and friends who shared their life stories with me, and the inspiration to write about them.”
