IN SPITE OF THE DARK: A Collection Of Poetry And Prose

In Spite of the Dark features both light and dark themed stories, many created in 2020 at a time when the world was facing severe challenges and we longed for reassurance. The theme of this collection is that even in dark places, there can be hope. There is life in spite of loss. There is creativity in spite of pain. There is light in spite of the dark.


I'm one of 10 authors whose work is featured in this book.

Four of my poems included in this publication are:

SPRING WHISPERS
