Her writing is truly transcendant.
- Her palette contains enough shades of fear and loathing to paint our time, but applied to a Romantic poet’s mind’s-eye and with a Modernist mind’s-ear.
I am writing to you because of your piece Ashes Rain, Coast to Coast, in the “Fine Lines” literary magazine. I wanted to tell you that this is one of the most beautiful poems I have ever had the pleasure of reading. The imagery you used paints an absolutely stunning picture in the readers’ mind. I felt as though it was raining ashes on me while I was reading this. Furthermore, I’d like to say that I love the topic you wrote on. I never considered the truly destructive power of fire. I do not know if it was your intention or not, but this piece reminded me of the wildfires in California. I had never before thought of all the memories fire takes away, as well as the homes it destroys. You are a very talented writer and I hope to be able to read more of your work in the future.
