This lovely new book arrived at my doorstep today. I’ve always wanted to be a writer so last year I took a giant leap of faith and committed fully to this path. Rewriting ‘soft magic’ was a great stress and a great joy. You are looking at my everything, a manifestation of all my grandmother’s and my mother’s prayers for me. New poems and old ones. Big edits and small ones. New version, same magic. Pre-order now on Amazon, B&N, IndieBound & Target (links in bio). ………………………………………………………………………. I am forever grateful to my partner, my family and friends who pushed me to make this happen. My literary agents at Folio Management and my editor at Andrews McMeel, you are in the business of making dreams come true, I thank you. My warmest thank you is to anyone who has ever read my work and found it even the slightest bit moving. You supported my work and put your friend onto my work and they told their friends, and now we are all here. ?
