Sappho’s Delights: Poems 1984 - 1997
These tasty morsels span almost a decade. From coming out as bisexual during high school in Maryland, a frisky four years of college in Connecticut (with an interim in zesty California), a healing year in Northern Idaho, participating on the Global Walk for a Livable World (where she walked from Los Angeles to Flagstaff, Arizona), living as a lesbian separatist, as well as opening the feminist bookstore in Santa Cruz, California.
Friends, lovers, cats, and companions are celebrated through poems, haiku, songs, ramblings, and even some blues. Dip your toes into the honey!

Slices of Life: Poems and Prose 2008 - 2022
Divided into five sections - Her Story, Recipes, Kitchens, Lists, and Tidbits. The meat of the book is the Her story, with several hefty pieces, most notably the insemination story and chunking through a “History of Eating.” Accompanied by memories of past Kitchens with a side of Recipes, these are tasty morsels, some saucy, some juicy, some just plain bitter. Always good to stir it up. The Lists act as a menu of writing prompts: Foods, Restaurants, and Words, each one is its appetizer and dessert. Garnishing the cookbook is the Tidbits section, a few haikus and ramblings, and a spring of fresh parsley to cleanse the palate.
Pandemic Blues: Poems and Prose 2020 - 2023
A collection of poetry, prose, letters, and photographs during the outbreak of COVID-19 in the United States. A time of lockdowns and long walks, isolation and virtual friendships, chalk art, and free libraries. Between impeachments, infections, and insurrections, there was a lot to be blue about.
According to the Mayo Clinic, menopause is experienced by over 3 million women a year in the United States alone. What makes this book different is viewing menopause as a time of incredible spiritual growth and creativity, rather than just a physical experience that needs a special diet or more exercise.
The book offers concrete tools such as guided visualizations, meditations, and rituals to honor this significant passage in a woman's life. Rather than a dry reference book, it includes humorous stories, inspiring poetry, and juicy practices to experience mindful menopause.

Wonderful absolutely wonderful. Historically time and patterns repeat like the ancient art of storytelling, sitting around the campfire or the evening fireplace with full bellies and listening to the storyteller ( the elders), it’s a love message of I believe in you and I unconditionally love you too... The receding pandemic has highlighted these truths of connection. This delightful book should be read to not only children, teens, and young adults but also middle-aged adults too who want to remember dear loved ones or want to find a heart grandmother or grandfather, remember to seek and you shall receive ... Mother Earth is plentiful.. thank you Kayla Nona - Janice Carr
This is a wonderful book for young and old alike. I thoroughly loved the message and the uplifting storyline. Great book. - Justice
