    I received and read your book. Wow! Just wow! As I anticipated, my favorite part was of the book was Erotic Love. You really have a flare for romantic poems. I love the subtlety of the way you handled the topic of eros. It was neither thrown in the readers face in an unoriginal way, and neither was it hidden. When I first read excerpts from your book on this website under the love section, I thought that was as good as it got. I didn’t think it was likely that a person could write love poems consistently so well, but you have definitely exceeded my expectations. I tip my hat to you, fellow poet, you’ve got the goddess of love on your favor! ere were other poems I liked too, and I wrote all the details in my review of your book on and It’s going to be hard to move on to the next book after this. I finished reading your book in a few hours ago today, but the love section is still stuck in my mind. If there are any other hopeless romantics out there, this is the book for you!

    • Wow! Thanks Sam for such a long and kind comment. You made my day. I am glad to hear that you really enjoyed the book. I have a second book coming out this October, stay tuned. In the mean time, please enjoy the blog posts. Best!
