From the Author
Excerpt from the foreword:
These are two books that my husband, Tim, helped me compile when I couldn't. I am grateful for his help. They were originally published as two separate eBooks in 2013.
Both sections of this text contain many poems from my archives that I wrote as a teenager in Enid, Oklahoma. Due to the uncertainty about my being able to continue writing at the time of compilation, my aim was to archive everything that I had written thus far, good or bad, polished or raw.
I wrote the newer selections of Abundant Sparks between October 2011 and May 2013 while I was still working and living in San Rafael.
The newer pieces in Personal Archeology, on the other hand, I created between May 2013 and November 2013 during a time of uncertainty and personal reflection. The title poem examines a handful of my famous relatives, as I am distantly related to the following historical figures: Karl Ludwig Sand, Azeline Hearne, Dicey Langston, Jack Reed.
Due to medical restrictions and a lack of inspiration following an injury that left me unable to type without severe pain, I ceased writing for the majority of 2014 until I attended my first open mic that December, which relit my inner poetic flame.
I delayed releasing this paperback until 2015, coinciding with the release of Look Ma! No Hands! when dictation software allowed me to write again. This version was re-edited by the author in 2017, primarily because punctuation is the bane of my existence, leaving previous editions with too many errors to be ignored, and my poetry formatting style has since changed to not capitalize first letters of every line.
