Proper Poems for Ladies . . . And a few naughty ones, too is a limited edition chapbook that could be called a tribute to women, but it is more of a hug, more of a glimpse into the realities of life as a female, more of a recalling of the many facets of femininity.  This book salutes the abilities of women, extols the variety of who women are and pays homage to female capacities.

"The Au Revoir Of An Enormous Us is a collection containing the inventory of my poetic journey. The joys, sorrows, memories, and reveries; the people and places, the histories, and the voyages of imagination that populate these pages, form my testament to a world, whose presences, and absences, have accompanied me, and formed the fragile scaffolding for the little empire of my existence -- an intensely-felt world of a self, of an I, intimately environed and occupied by a brilliant otherness of those, and them, and it and you . . . An Enormous Us!"

Linda LaVere

Shadowlands is poetry of the personal and sensual explorations made while we walk the knife-edge of our own dualities and illusions.
