Slaughter the One Bird, my first full length collection, debuts with Sundress Publications this summer. This book examines the lifelong effects of harm done by childhood sexual assault against the back drop of a Midwestern landscape and Judeo-Christianity. Framed by the Hebrew ritual sacrifice for cleansing leprosy from a household referenced in Leviticus, as Julie L. Moore (author of Full Worm Moon) says, the book "depicts the devastation that pedophilia wreaks when its plague is allowed to fester." Pre-order information coming soon!
Here's my first video teaser for Slaughter the One Bird. Enter bravely (TW). It's "Sunday Morning."
