Readers’ Comments

“Your words are powerful, with so much hard-won truth to them. You dance with wild steps I can feel in my own muscles…”
— Bridget Agabra Goldstein

“I have just finished reading all of the excerpts from your stories. You walk the reader through such huge a range of emotions, in such an intimate way – it’s incredible. And your use of analogies, as always, is brilliant. I think the best way to express in a nutshell what I think is to tell you that I read each excerpt, in turn, the same thought went through my mind: ‘well, perhaps this is my favorite.’”
— Valerie Ciconne

“I’ve got to say how impressed I was with your book excerpts. They really resonated with where life seems to be at this age. My hat’s off to you! Can’t wait to read the whole thing!”
— Robh Ruppel
