my new book, is now available here:

Early comments about the book come from:

GeraldiLocklin: …sexual and scriptural
Robert Hedin:a stunning acuity of mage and vision…
Margot Farrington:  ...where anguish and solace collide…

“Here, struggle and surrender dance their inseparable tango. Those whose lives she bids us enter exist like storm-driven kites: dipping and rising, finding the heights, fearing the line will snap.”   ~~~Margot Farrington
