Fighting Words And Other Loving Thoughts is a collection of poems and short stories deeply rooted in the human condition. It speaks to the dichotomy of love and its many forms. An emotional and mental radio of sorts, it is written with the understanding that one page may be the introduction of a character you merely admire from afar whereas the next will read like a summary of your life. It does not shy away from speaking out on the subjects that tug at the heart and boggle the mind. Its language is brash, gentle, metaphoric, in-your-face, decorated and stripped bare. It is a wild and unapologetic journey through the heart and mind that will inevitably leave you changed. If you have ever loved, hated, laughed, cried or existed, you will want to read this book.
