Nenadich Street, Poems and Passages, my second book, will be released sometime this month—my debut as a poet, and more! The inspiration for the poems evolved over a period of time, although I wrote some just last summer. It was my wish to create a life's narrative in a woman's poetic voice, reflecting strength as well as vulnerability. I envisioned Nenadich Street as a journey: a female navigating the corridors of life, full and sensual, sad and hopeful. The little chapters called Passages, continue to document the journey with candid social commentary and what I like to think is grittiness and wry humor.
