“Things We Don’t Talk About” is a short collection of thoughts, quotes and poetry highlighting some hardships of living with depression and mental illness and the effects it has on relationships with yourself and loved ones. It’s a personal lens into the darkest places your mind can take you and the struggle of battling your own mind.

It’s a peak of what’s underneath the surface that most people battle in silence, something you may or may not relate to. If you’re reading this, it’s not too late and you’re not alone. In addition, I just wanted to say thank you for allowing me to share a part of me, whether it was specifically of value to you.

I hope to make at least one person in this world to feel less alone. Communication and or expressing our feelings, it’s one of the hardest things to do. Often we get discouraged to even try to express ourselves due to the fear of not being understood and or not doing it the “right” way.

We are all human and the best thing we can do is to continue trying. Please keep an open mind and always lead with love. Note: Originally published in January 2019, updated version published November 2020.

View on Amazon

The award-winning poet reinvents a genre in a stunning work that is both a novel and a poem, both an unconventional re-creation of an ancient Greek myth and a wholly original coming-of-age story set in the present. Geryon, a young boy who is also a winged red monster, reveals the volcanic terrain of his fragile, tormented soul in an autobiography he begins at the age of five.

As he grows older, Geryon escapes his abusive brother and affectionate but ineffectual mother, finding solace behind the lens of his camera and in the arms of a young man named Herakles, a cavalier drifter who leaves him at the peak of infatuation.

When Herakles reappears years later, Geryon confronts again the pain of his desire and embarks on a journey that will unleash his creative imagination to its fullest extent. By turns whimsical and haunting, erudite and accessible, richly layered and deceptively simple, Autobiography of Red is a profoundly moving portrait of an artist coming to terms with the fantastic accident of who he is.
