Charting the Lost Continent: Poetry and Other Discoveries

January 2020 (Rainbow River Press)


"relatable and provocative"

Revealing, relatable, and provocative, the interior recesses of a fully-lived life are laid bare in Charting the Lost Continent. Here the reader finds connection through a deeply moving examination of the human experience, womanhood, and the arc of one individual’s life. This collection is a homecoming; a contemplative garden in which to linger.

— Lynne M. Burns, M.A.Ed., educator, storyteller, and student of Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estés (author of Women Who Run with the Wolves)
