First chapbook released! Available at Sweet Carolines (Blakely, GA), Maiden South (Bainbridge, GA), and on Amazon.
sweetened & steeped submerges you in a dimension of childhood unique to southern Georgia, a place as warm and romantic as it is dangerous and unforgiving. Growing up in this isolated world gives life a degree of timelessness alongside impermanence, and these poems trace how zest evolves to recklessness and curiosity to hostility. Through sweetened & steeped, the narrator struggles with the complicated notion of home and the forgiveness needed to return.
