I’m incredibly excited to share that Aldrich Press (an imprint of Kelsay Books) has accepted my manuscript, Uniform, for publication. Much gratitude to Aldrich Press for having faith in my book!
Uniform is a collection of poems that at first was difficult to begin writing because the poems give voice to the silences of being “married to the Marine Corps.” The more I wrote, though, the more I realized that so many of those silences were self-imposed and that there are many women and men who feel as alone and voiceless as I often feel. The thing that I love most about poetry is that it unites people through shared emotions, and I am grateful to have this opportunity to share my book.
A publication date is several months down the line, but I just had to spread my enthusiasm.
