"She's been through the trenches; she knows the way the world comes down. You can feel it in the work. You're not just looking at words in a book, you're regarding a life that's been opened up and splashed down on the page. This lady is not only courageous, she's fearless.

- Tom Piccirilli, author of The Midnight Road and Waiting My

Turn to Go Under the Knife, from his introduction

- Christopher Conlon, author of Mary Falls: Requiem for

Mrs. Surratt and Midnight on Mourn Street

Winner of the 2009 Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement in Poetry.
