Diane Sciullo Smalley was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and educated at the University of Pittsburgh where she studied literature and writing, and the University of Dayton School of Law, where she earned a juris doctorate. She found her love of poetry at an early age through Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken, which she considers to be one of the most perfect poems ever written. She believes "the gift outright" of all poetry is music to the heart.
An inviting volume of prose, 18 poems in all.
Romantic, bold, Woman Looking Down takes a strong look at love and loss and articulates with an offbeat seductiveness what we already know instinctively, that the complicated navigations of living are simply the best roads of life. A good read for every lover of poetry.
