A distinctive voice, stunning images. Running through, or below, all her poems there is a feeling of deep sensuous connection, of passionate life taking control of metaphor.

"The writing is sharp, precise .... In this work there is a sense of life rummaging beneath the harsh exteriors of snow and night, pain and languages sniff of spring." -- Kim Van Vliet, Canadian Book Review Annual
