My newest poetry collection Dandelion Girls and Other Mythical Creatures has officially been published! It’s available in [paperback] or as an [ebook]. This book is a pagan-themed look into my thoughts on mythology and modern life, as well as the magic of the simple things around us.
Here’s a peek at the back cover description:
when you look at a field full of dandelion puffs
do you see wishes or weeds?
magic or just seeds?
I see dozens of flowers nobody wanted
who choose to bloom anyway
[all things start with a seed]
In this case, the seed was a promise to write at least one poem every day for a year. I figured the odds were on my side; they couldn’t all end up lame, right?
Imagine my surprise when a field full of poems sprouted!
Between daydreams and moonbeams, I’ve woven poetry out of my favorite myths and fairytales. Every flower (and every poem) is beautiful in its own way, but this particular collection is focused on putting magic into words.
I played dandelion and scattered these poems across the pagers with no real rhyme or reason. Enjoy the ride, and land wherever the wind takes you.
Dandelions are my favorite flowers. Seriously!
I’ve posted some of these poems before through my blogs and social media, and I will likely do so again and again. Poetry is made for sharing with others. If you choose to pass my words around to your friends and family, I’m all for it!
I appreciate every single like, share, and purchase. A middle schooler used one of my poems for a school project just last month, and it was mind-blowing and awesome and just… wow. Nothing makes a creator feel better than having others enjoy their creations.
