Sidewalk Lament

When your American Dream goes awry,

and you no longer reach for the stars,

reach for the humour instead––

and then hit the bars.

IMG_3530My debut novel following a young fashion designer’s climb to the top of the international fashion industry is liberally sprinkled with stars, humour and bars. You can buy Silk for the Feed Dogs here.


  1. Aw.. That’s cute and a bit sad too. That barista needs a big tip! Finally got my copy of your book! Can’t wait to have a read 🙂 my sister-inlaw wants to borrow it already. She’ll just have to wait 😉

  2. There’s one of the genie’s wishes wasted… 🙂

  3. I love that sign…it’s true though, right?!

  4. Reblogged this on Robin of Rockridge's Blog and commented:
    I like this approach. When all else fails, turn to humor.

  5. …and she’s a poet, don’t I know it!

  6. No she no poet. That she knows. But the chalk board sign got me going. It was stronger than me 🙂
