What Readers Are Saying About Spoon:

...each poem revealed a complete story triggered through an astounding economy of words. (John Farmer)

I can identify with so much that you have written; they could have been my own thoughts. Your words create powerful images. Your soul is laid bare. You have such courage in writing your truths. (Gail Newman)

Impressed by your writing skill to convey the emotion underlying your thoughts, experiences...A good read of poetry! (Lois Hobson)

You really open yourself up--heart and soul--in your writing, and it is beautiful and meaningful...your observations, your sensitivity, your compassion and caring for people. (Sandi Schenholm)

...your work is so damn tender and loving. (Roger Aplon)
