My father encouraged me to follow my dream, and I took the leap and chased it around the world. The result: State Lines: Poems for the Journey Home.
From exploring the raw moments of grief and tension that come with loss, to the excitement of traveling the world, State Lines is a daring collection of poems that invites readers into adventure and vulnerability. Creatively penned in cities around the world, the collection is seamlessly woven together by a quest for home: a place of love, safety, and belonging.
