About the Book

“The Amaryllis flower is also known as ‘Naked Lady’ because it flowers alone, without leads, on a pair stock. There is no more appropriate name for this collection of poems. Taken together, they gently pushed aside the thin curtain of formality and reveal the strong backbone that supports the beautiful spectacle of a life that is but honestly lived. From love, lust and motherhood to transition, fear and loss, Amaryllis: Collected Poems is the story of the journey of one woman with nothing to hide.”
–Erin Barrett, author, poet, syndicated columnist

“These are poems to be read aloud, to others or to oneself, savoring. They celebrate both Eros and Agape, erotic love as well as pure and redemptive caring and do not make judgments about either. She pays homage to Anne Sexton and Virginia Woolf in the book, and so is the book and intense, vivid paean to female life, love and words. Pagan in its love of nature, but deeply reverent in its love of the Healer, the Teacher, the Savior, Amaryllis is a dazzling festival of expression in the pages of a book of verse.”
–Roberta Lee Tennant, writer, publisher, Ankh Press
