Ms. Dove I'll confess to never having read any of your award winning poetry, but I'd like to offer my unqualified opinion that the world could use a hefty dose of your fiction writing. I was completely unprepared for the beauty of these stories and how they emotionally impacted me. Your poetic talents shine through in your sentences, but it is your ability to bring a person to life on the page that got me.

You can do more in 72 pages - 8 short stories - than many authors attempt in tomes ten time
