Tidal Fury intermeshes styles in narratorial strands. A love story -- he was "a literary device, and then I discovered we knew each other intimately. " An aged narcissist who wields power and invokes a subtext on the social politics of power. A poet whose muse is Medusa. Tidal Fury is a poetry on the edge of the text of an interior ocean of fury and passion.

Tidal Fury is a richly layered, challenging collection by a multi-talented woman. Each line of Tidal Fury shuttles and re-strands a woman immersed in art, culture, mythology who braids and beads words and images in a complex, often erotically-charged conversation with various characters and with the reader, whom she meets "at the edge of the text. " -- John Oughton, author of Time Slip and Death by Triangulation
