This chapbook is full of things dark and strange. In these 24 poems and flash pieces, the reader is invited on a journey through childhood nostalgia, teenage awkwardness, and unhealthy romances twisted by the powers of magical realism. Monsters will appear, the inanimate will come to life, and all will get lost in the murkiness between real and imaginary.
The kindle-version of Rotten Pleasantness will be FREE on May 20-23!
