"The author describes the frustration and fear surrounding epileptic aura and seizure. With strength and courage she writes of the reassurance of recovery. Stark words offer hope to the reader through the 52 poems she presents in this small volume of verse."

"You will want to know this teacher after reading the book. Better than that, you will want your child to be in her classroom. What a wonderful, witty woman. Thank goodness she has entered the profession."
"If you are serious about writing poetry, this book will serve you on so many levels. The author meets you where you are in your development and moves you to poetic places you might never think possible. This is a book to which I return again and again."
"I met the author at a book signing. When I asked her why she wrote this book about her son's traumatic brain injury resulting from a car crash, she said, "To bear witness." I have never forgotten that. What an extraordinary woman--mother, professor, writer. You will be richer for having read this extraordinary book."
"I was intrigued by the entire title--Epilepsy: A New Approach: What Medicine Can Do-What You Can Do To Help Yourself. It was that last part, "What You Can Do To Help Yourself" that caused me to purchase this book. And how glad I am that I did. This book is full of information the epileptic must have."
