Books 

2012

  • Drunk Dialing the Divine (e-book- $2.49, print $8.99)- An attempt to capture the darker side of the emotional struggle of the deeply faithful, as embodied in the image of a friend drunk-dialing to make prayer requests. Though each poem begins in a negative space, they resist both the angry and the naively optimistic ending- instead finding a ray of hope in  the maxim ‘Things Are Because God Is’. Best described as poetry written from the ‘dark night of the soul’, as explained by St. John of the Cross and Mother Theresa.  –Available now in all electronic formats from eLectio publishing, or for e-readers  from Amazon and Barnes & Noble. and in POD print formats from Amazon and eLectio.
