RELEASE DAY!!!! Growth Rings is Available NOW!

by on September 22, 2015

growthringsGrowth Rings is dedicated to my Grandma Twila who passed away fourteen years ago today, just before I gave birth to my first child. She encouraged me to submit to a publisher even back then, but it took years for me to build the courage. I miss her tremendously, and I hope she’s somewhere cheering me on.


You ask me…
“Will you miss me?”
I say…
“How could I not?”
You ask me…
“Do you love me?”
I say…
“I love you enough to let you go.”
You ask me…
“Will you cry?”
I say…
“Only tears of joy, for you will feel no more pain.”
You ask me…
“Will I see you again?”
I say…
“If there is a God, you will see me again.”
You ask me…
“Is it okay to let go?”
I say…
“I love you.”

A Collection of Poetry

From the romantic fantasies of a teenager, to the joys of motherhood, and the sorrows of a twenty-one-year-old divorcee, Growth Rings encompasses the rise and fall of childhood dreams. It is a peek into the mind of a child who struggled to love herself in spite of damaging experiences and a woman who hasn’t figured out how to love her inner child.

Walk with me through the ebbs and flows of my growth rings. Journey through pain and triumph, occasionally examining the effect that society’s prejudice has had on me as an individual. It’s my reality and my fantasy all neatly packaged in a series of poems.
