10/10 Countdown to January 25

Counting down with a daily nugget regarding my memoir, The Tree You Come Home To, available in just 10 days! 

It’s two stories intertwined, that of my son Casey who was shot and killed in 2009 at the age of 20 and my own as I sought ways to find a way forward in this beautiful, difficult world. I began writing poems about Casey soon after he died, which make up a good part of Seeking the Other Side (Fleur de Lis Press). Writing about my internal life during the four years or so that followed became my part of this memoir. Casey’s story, from birth to death, came about when I realized mine was only half of our shared story.
