"You remind us of what's important." Review of Under a Blameless Moon
"I don't have much time to read. The problem with your book, Letting Myself In, is that I did just that. I let myself into your book. Now, your poems, disrespectful of my numerous other commitments, keep calling me back. Each demands to be savored and contemplated, yet your talent drives me to read on, even though I am still immersed below the surface of the previous poem. What a treasure to have such a dilemma in my day!"Poetry Workshop Participant
