A friend/acquaintance recently had her first poetry book published More Possum than Turtle , by Rosemarie Sprouls. The book received rave reviews and excerpts can be read at TheChapbookstore.com. No, not my usual reading material, however, I did order the book because Roe is one of those people who you tend to gravitate to-she's insightful, witty, warm and yes, multi-talented. She's an adjunct professor of writing, a Celtic Harpist and recently I learned (shhhhh-she has a wheel and is trying to process some fleeces). Just when you think you know someone.
In any event, support an artist-go read the excerpts and buy the book here (yes, they take Paypal and it's a mere $12 with $1.85 shipping)
ETA: The book came in two days and I plan to start reading it soon-again, congrats Roe!
