New Review

A lovely review of my book is up at Prairie Fire, the home of a few of the essays before they were collected.

Here's a link to the review by Judy McFarlane, author of Writing with Grace: A Journey Beyond Down Syndrome.

Judy calls Reverberations "a poignant and eloquent tribute to the power of paying close attention." 

I love this observation, in part because the writing I enjoy the best, whether fiction or nonfiction, comes from a writer who pays close attention. And when I'm struggling with a piece of writing, returning to something concrete--an act, an item, a smell--helps me figure out what I really want to convey.

A rock shaped like a heart. Just lying there. As they do.  

Many thanks to both Judy and Prairie Fire for this review and for all the rest of the work they do within the greater writing community.
