As a break from my novel series, this collection represents an imaginary sequence of events, through which I envision and explore through poetic form what happened to Anais Nin after she left Henry Miller, to Zelda Fitzgerald after she stepped out of the "Golden Girl" limelight then struggled with her descent into madness, and to Amelia Earhart on the final voyage that led to her disappearance.

It appears that this poet has taken an incredible amount of time to make everything just right. In fact the amount of effort she put into this work would not have even crossed my mind if I hadn't been reading it critically, because she has woven it together so magically. It's like watching an Olympic ice skater perform an impeccable and breathtaking act.
