The Book

Smiling Again

I have spent years living with anxiety and depression before realizing how to express myself through writing.  The ups and downs of an emotional rollercoaster helped me create this vast selection of my work in my recent book “Smiling Again: Expressions Through Poetry.”

I will take you on a ride that is my life with poems ranging from beautiful and loving to dark and distraught.  Sometimes humor is found around an unsuspecting corner.  You just may find yourself laughing out loud.  Regardless, the experience will be encouraging to all who suffer from anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder as well as those who love someone who is suffering.

Inside my book you will find, after each poem, a blank page.  That blank page is for you.  I want you to use that page to write down how you felt about the poem.  Did it touch you, did it make you have a connection with something from your life?  Express yourself on that blank page.  Do not leave it blank, express something.  After you have read the book, please feel free to share with me what you wrote on one, some or all of those blank pages because that would make me very happy.
