Editorial Reviews

Fred Marchant
"Seven Times to Leave presents us with survivors' tales, stories that teach us the strength of mind and courage of soul that the recovery from such trauma requires. These unflinching, brave poems remind us that above all we must keep alive our capacity to love, or else we die somewhere deep within."
-- Fred Marchant, Author, The Looking House
Charles Coe
"With searing honesty, and not a trace of self pity, Angell holds the reader's gaze, daring us to join her on the painful journey where she lost, then regained, the power to be herself."
-- Charles Coe, Author, Picnic on The Moon
Reggie Gibson - Regie Gibson
"Angell levels an uncomfortable light on an unacknowledged truth...that all of us, at some time, 'make love in the dark.'"
-- Regie Gibson, Slam Poet and Co-Writer, Love Jones
The Poet's Corner - Joe Gouveia
"These poems go beyond victimization, transcending to personal revelations that are written in a way that connects the reader to the circumstance."
-- Joe Gouveia, Radio Host, The Poet's Corner
