Welcome to the September issue of my newsletter. I love the warm days and cool evenings, the imperceptible shift in the air. I hope you are safe and healthy.
I’ve got some great news to share. First, the exciting news about my third book, Words of Life, Poems and Essays © 2019 is now available from Audible.com as an audio book. For those of you who want to know how I sound reciting my poetry, you are in luck — I narrate most of the poetry. I am joined by the talented voice actors Lillian Yves and Vincent Lee Grayson reading the essays and poems along with me.

An important announcement about my unnamed book dragon. She’s found her name after many hours of searching and flying to the highest elevations and deepest caverns.
Alighting amid creative winds
And whimsical notes she spins
She makes connections with Annie
And Dreya is her name.
Below is An illustration of Dreya the book dragon amid floating books and musical notes. To the right are the words Making meaningful connections with others through writing.
Thanks for following my creative path and may good tidings, positive energy and the Mother’s blessings be shared among us.
