Loneliness, sadness, numbness, exhaustion, feelings of guilt . . . just barely holding on, losing touch with friends, sick and tired of feeling so sad and terrible . . . I felt all those things after the death of my daughter, Lori. Out of all that confusion and pain, I had to build a new life. Part of that was letting myself feel all the grief, and out of that terrible brew of feelings, came the words to express them. As I expressed them, felt them, turning them into poems, they eventually lost their ownership of my life.

My two books express my feelings and thoughts on this journey, the first book, Stars in the Deepest Night, reflecting the first 8 years, and the second book, Catching the Light, the full gamut up to 18 years after her death. My hope with both books is that those who read and understand the feelings expressed will find solace and hope, and those whose lives havenít given them this terrible knowledge, may better understand the universality of thoughts and feelings during grief that they convey. I hope the poems from both my books will reach a healing place in those of you who are grieving and bring a bit of light to help you on your way.
