Editorial Reviews


Advance Praise for
Desire Returns for a Visit

"These are fresh poems in every sense of the word. Flirty, audacious, original. A fresh take on Dickinson's love of women and words. A brazen exploration of the life cycle of love affairs. This book is an open-mouthed kiss to the reader. It will leave you breathless."

G.L. Morrison, poet, lover of words, and writer of short fiction

"I didn't need to read beyond the first line of the first poem to know I'd be loving this book."

Lee Lynch, novelist, essayist, short story writer, trailblazer, and both the inspiration and first winner of the annual Lee Lynch Classic Award given by the Golden Crown Literary Society

"[Sandra de Helen's] book of poems is a great way to read a truthful, witty, poignant memoir of lesbian love."

Judy Grahn, poet, author, professor, and grande dame of lesbian poetry and nonfiction

--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I am a poet, a playwright, and a crime writer. My latest poetry collection, Poetry for the People was published December, 2020. It won Book of the Month January 2021 from I Heart LesFic.

NYT best-selling author Chelsea Cain calls my thriller Till Darkness Comes "a terrific and totally satisfying book." I hope you think so as well.

I also hope you're enjoying the Shirley Combs mysteries. I'm currently writing a the third book in the Shirley series.

Four of my books are available on Audible as well as Amazon.

Thanks for visiting my Author page. I also have an author page on FaceBook.
