Wine-Dark Mother and the Trapper's Son
by Jim Churchill-Dicks"Sometimes one simply appreciates the poetry, despite
a struggle for connection to the poems. And sometimes
one gets to both appreciate the poetry and connect to the emotions,
the communion of the characters in all aspects of life on the page."
~ Eliot B. Muir"Beautiful collection which captures the beauty of the natural world,
with vivid, oftentimes, disturbing images of the past longing for
reconciliation and forgiveness."
~ Rob McCabe

Constellations Of My Body by Jessica Mehta"Jessica Mehta's newest collection, Constellations
of My Body, traces the boundaries of memory and
identity, taking readers from the forests of Oregon
to the towers of Abu Dhabi and the streets of Costa
Rica in the poet's search for herself."
~ Tiah Linder"This collection of musings, facts, travels,
and a life lived, is richly woven in this haphazard
beautiful tapestry of words." ~Leila Tualla, Author
"The way Mehta uses the short stories to lead into
different parts of the memoir creates an unusual
frame and makes a unique use of foreshadowing
that grabs the audience’s attention from the beginning."
~ Skyler BoudreauGimme the Familiars by Jessica Mehta"Mehta transitions from fable to vivid memoir, seamlessly,
revisiting childhood memories of uncomfortability and realization."
~ Taylor Davis, Lazy Canary
