Menomama3 of Life in a Flash and Wuthering Bites might have been the first person to order Doll God from Amazon. We’re not sure, but suspect so. Now she writes a review of my poetry collection that is as well-written, personal, and completely engaging as her posts are !!!
Ms. Menomama3 also was one of the first bloggers I read when my daughter and I started our adoption blog several years ago. Ms. M and I are both mothers in transracial (and international) adoptive families–her children are from China and mine are from Korea.
Stick around for the rest of her blog, while you’re over there reading the review!

I enjoy when people give their teachers and professors, along with their muses, credit for their writing lessons, Luanne. You are so gracious in your ability to remember where and who taught you these lifelong messages which help you in your craft. Your imagination, experiences and creative mind are also very valuable in your poetry and prose.
Robin, I love that Menomama did that in the review. I did an interview recently for the alumni dept.at my college (http://www.mywmu.com/s/1428/gid2/story.aspx?sid=1428&gid=2&pgid=2418&cid=4788&ecid=4788&crid=0&calpgid=1517&calcid=3677) and I wanted to name names of professors I worked with for my master’s degrees, but there were so great many that I didn’t want to leave anyone out by accident, so I lumped them all in together! Wouldn’t that make a fun blog post, though, to identify who taught me this and who taught me that? Have you ever written one like that? I will say that hubby taught me how to use a semi colon freshman year of college LOL.
What a great review. It’s a sort of memoir of a specific reader enjoying your poems. Beautifully done.
WJ, that’s a good way to describe it! I love to read MM’s memoir posts. I can’t wait until I see her start publishing her writing.
I agree with Robin, you’re the most gracious poet I know, Luanne. 🙂 This is a terrific review. Thank you for sharing it with us. xo
Jill, you are so sweet–and the picture of graciousness yourself. Thank you for sticking with me for this crazy ride with the book!
How I loved reading this! I’m not a masterful poet like you are, but I like to dabble in it, and I like how it makes me feel, and how poetry helps me express so many emotions. You are inspiring me!!!
