A brave, original, memorable collection.

“…fiercely present…committed to justice-making as well as to the mysteries of being…”
Susan McCaslin

Mute Swan explores the landscape of the voiceless—voices misnamed, silenced, discounted, or subverted. Within a context of historic and contemporary Christendom, yet blurring perceptions of both, the poet offers a story of spiritual awakening and “unmuting.” Through her willingness to look directly at our human experience of injustice, impermanence, longing, beauty and love, the poet writes a way toward spiritual freedom. Mute Swan is a love letter calling us home.

“…earthy, raw…rich birthing imagery…poems where everything belongs.”

Christine Valters Paintner


“…a story beckoning me to a supper table where even the most rejected, fearsome and lonely parts can know home.”

Gareth Higgins


“…delightfully feminist in its embodied all inclusive natural imagery…”

Katerina Vaughan Fretwell


“Moving fluently between languages of nature, silence, and faith…”

Jordan Hartt
