Well, a few months after completion of the poetry collections mentioned on my site: Theodore in November and Daydreams in Mermaid Grass, I have agreed publication and an offer.
Publication date is to be confirmed, but I am very excited to see the finished article!
A lot of time and personal creativity went into these works; I almost feel as if they are my children who now will be born to live their own lives. I finally am setting them free to explore your world!
The collection Theodore in November is a journey of love. It began with simple concepts of what my own idea of what love is, and evolved into what is love? And so I set about throwing myself into a journey from the beginning of such a love to the end, and all that could happen in between. The emotive language grabs hold of your soul and takes you on a whirlwind adventure; leaving you unable to be touched by the feelings the words create.
Daydreams in Mermaid Grass came about purely due to my own strange dreams. I often wake up in a cold sweat, wondering what worlds I have just dreamt myself into! And so I imagined what it would be like to dream completely. The language of the title is almost a caress; metaphorical for what a dream could feel like if you touched. Mermaid Grass came to mind. Did you really see that mermaid? Was it all a dream, a dream as soft as fresh green grass touching your skin? Sleep and read the collection with me.
