Cassells waited for these poems, listening patiently for their deep harmonies, probing their quiet revelations... Throughout there is a clear strain of praise and belief, unabashed and unapologetic. The last poem ends with a ‘burgeoning dawn’ a promise ofmore after this geyser of sound. What distilled magical mysterious poems!”—Spencer Reece, author of The Clerk´s Tale andThe Road to Emmaus • Metamortuary, Dylan Krieger (2020), $16, or $9.99 at Kindle and iBooks.

Wiener (2018), $16, or $9.99 at Kindle and iBooks. “…Diane Wiener unlocks the door to a room of confidences, secrets, passions, and fears.
