Editorial Reviews

About the Author

My grandmother taught me to read when I was two, and it was always the stories that enthralled me, never the lessons. In elementary school, I was the playground storyteller often telling stories for the expressed purpose of frightening the other kids. Over the course of years, I’ve used my Master’s Degree in English for many paying jobs that did not include storytelling, but my heart is always in the weaving of a tale.

More About the Author

Vickie Adair currently lives in San Marcos, Texas with the smartest dog on the planet. She received her Master of Arts degree from SFASU and was a technical writer and university writing instructor for decades until she "retired"
at sixty to start publishing all those manuscripts of fiction and poetry that she had been writing and hiding in a drawer.

Her first published book was an illustrated children's book, Once Upon A Tooth...a Fairy's Tale, and her second was a book of poetry, Sonnet of a Housewife, and other poems. Rebels of Theta, the first novel in the Gods of Arth
trilogy, is her first science fiction novel to be published.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A masterful and deft collection of poems which disarm the reader with their honesty and vulnerability. Vickie Adair's poems conjure up loss: either through time or through the erosion of a relationship or just through the evolution of living. There is humour in these poems and there is joy of being in the moment. Her poetry is a reminder of the struggle and triumph in being human.

Format: Paperback
Vickie Adair over the years wrote poems for herself more as a means of therapy than for publication, recently she was persuaded to release them to her publisher. Lucky for us poetry lovers she decided to share them because here we have a nice collection of poetry. Some of the poems capture raw human feeling and emotion and you can really sense the essence of mood in which is captured beautifully in the poems also when she is tapping into memories of the past when she was writing her poetry. Some of the poems are really moving and some are funny. It is poetry about living, about been human. Some of the topics she covers are age, death, tragedy and loneliness. There are some wonderful photographs of nature that go along side the poems.

A great little book of poetry even if you are not a great poetry lover there will be a poem in the book, which you can relate to.

Vickie Adair teachers writing and works as a freelance writer. Her first publication was an illustrated children's book called Once upon a Tooth . . . A Fairy's Tale.
