I continue to prepare the manuscript of Wounds I Healed: The Poetry of Strong Women for publication, with the editorial expertise of Amazon #1 bestselling poet Gabriela Marie Milton. Both Gabriela and I were deeply moved by the poetry of the many talented contributors to this anthology. We have added our thoughts on the book…An Exciting Update on ‘Wounds I Healed’… — Experiments in Fiction
This beautiful work will be available in print and as an ebook. I will definitely be ordering copies.
My two poems included in this anthology are about the wounding from DES (diethylstilbestrol), which was prescribed to my mother to prevent spotting while I was in utero. However, this drug destroyed my reproductive organs, causing a miscarriage, two cancer scares, major surgeries, and other effects suffered by many DES Babies. One poem is about that and the other is a letter to the daughter I miscarried.
I’m grateful to Gabriela Marie Milton and Ingrid Wilson for bringing together the songs of wounded healers.
