Biography

I write poetry zines and ebooks and am currently working on updating them all into Smashwords. If you are not familiar with a ZINE it is a book produced from a photo copier or a printer. I have just come back from my first zinefest in NYC held at Barnard College. I also write fiction and my first book is called SLANTBOARD which takes place in the future where people can ride on boards that float a little off the ground nor do they go much over 10 miles and hour so they have a similar culture to long-distance bike riding. Thanks for reading!

Books

Mecca Nation
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 4,870. Language: English. Published: March 22, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Science fiction » Utopias & dystopias
Mecca Nation is Trump's worst paranoid fear, that the US would become all Mecca-like and lose his empire in the process..I liked the similar sound of the word mechanized. So this is science fiction. Originally I believed in FEMA taking us out in their black coffin liners for future disasters. It is too bad they couldn't warehouse the boxes instead of putting them in fields. It is kind of creepy.
Destroyer Vs Guest
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 5,650. Language: English. Published: March 19, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Destroyer Vs Guest is from a non-medicine perspective about medicine or in other words, written before I started taking medicine so it comes out harsh until the end poem, Word Water Fountain. The Mythical Kingdoms talk about many kinds of rulers, but you may recognize different people in these descriptions. Some new poems include Go with the Flow, Fudge, Rapid Heartbeat and Scary Life. Look Etsy.
(Her) Majesty's Colon (Y)
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 4,780. Language: English. Published: March 18, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
In the poem, Her Majesty's Colon(Y), it is at the same time the United States (her fictional colony) and her fictional colon. It makes for a bad combination as taking a bite of it (the colony) it "fights back" (the colon). Other supporting poems are: Momentarily a Mollusk, How Not to Be a Zombie, Vassel (Fief), and Changing of the Guards. It remains up to you to decide how digestible we would be!
The Punishment of the Pyramid
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 5,120. Language: English. Published: March 16, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Hagar, from the bible, is an Ancient Egyptian queen who wants to take revenge on the world through the modern day globalists, who are her offspring. The globalists supposedly run the world and are in this elite club who suffer when they are young, so they can cause great suffering when they are older and more powerful. And they get their power from fallen angels. You get the picture. Etsy shop too
UnderDome
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 4,890. Language: English. Published: March 14, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
UnderDome has Seattle on the cover and that is fitting since most of the tech firms are based there and my poems hold technology at arm's length and I have relatives there. I write about becoming less because of tech (Holographic You, SeeThrough, Live (Dead Air), The Drill). I also include a poem called Asexual because of my daughter. I write about humanity (We Are The Seeds, Who Man). Look Etsy.
G(one) Cl(one)
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 4,760. Language: English. Published: March 14, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
G(one) Cl(one) is mainly a sci fi poetry book about the Earth (reflected in Earth Skin, Earth Orbit, Earth Pledge). It is a time when Earth is under threat and people have been cloned. Port of Tele is about a time machine. Perfume, the Teen Ecosystem series, Evolution (which is about words) are new. Carbon Date is not so much a poem but a statement that some things may not be not what you think.
Commune Sustainable
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 4,710. Language: English. Published: March 13, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Commune Sustainable started out as a reaction to what was happening with the implementation of Agenda 21, where a few people in San Francisco started losing their property. I assumed the regulations would go through the rest of the country but this has not happened. Nor have any FEMA death raids occurred as in the poem,White Trains. We Build and Yawn are new additions to what was too serious.
They (Your Lords) Use Orbs
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 4,300. Language: English. Published: March 12, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
They (Your Lords) Use Orbs started out as a concern over how much of our world is recorded by hand-held devices and how that information could be used by fallen angels (your lords) to their advantage. Orbs refer to you and your cell phones, laptops or anything you upload with. Light a Candle was significantly different in the first version of the book (earlier to combat evil) now not paranoid..
Let Them Eat Hate
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 5,170. Language: English. Published: March 11, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Let Them Eat Hate started out as a troubling thought that England was going to take over the United States! This resulted in Diva Play, Game of Crown, Lease Year What, Ice Age and Going Down to China Town. The New World Order (a ficticious group who wants to take over the world) is mentioned in Pillar of Salt. The title refers to the queen of England and what she would say if she was evil. Enjoy!
Stars and Stripes
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 5,640. Language: English. Published: March 10, 2017. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Stars and Stripes is patriotic. It is silly. It is paranoid. It has 57 poems.Hundred Thou and Wave are about Obama's dreamers. Black Boxes is about a rumor that mailboxes were marked with colored stickers denoting who would be killed or allowed to live (Fema) but in truth it showed what magazines they ordered! The Throne of Rome is about Obama's toilet. Sandy Hook was too terrible to believe then.
Population Interuptus
Price: $1.50 USD. Words: 5,800. Language: English. Published: June 25, 2015. Categories: Fiction » Poetry » Female authors
Population Interuptus has a political bent living in the age of more cameras focused on the public. There are 52 poems. The title comes from the aftermath of abortion and the pill (leaving families with fewer or no children). The poems don't reflect that though. They are about the government spying on you where they store information in differing locations I have made up names (poems) to describe.

Somewhat science fiction, an offbeat look at the Near East. There are 57 poems. My parents went to Saudi Arabia before the Gulf War so I have a connection to this place. I am not saying I would go there. They do not allow women to drive!

I love Scanning Complete. Hope you do too!
