About Joan Myles #Sharing Sunday

Thanks to fellow blogger Joan Myles for coming up with a neat idea. If people who follow her blog share her bio on their blogs, she’ll share theirs on her blog. So, I’m following suit. If you share my bio, I’ll share yours.

Sharing my bio is easy. Click here, or find the link at the top that says, “About Me.” Then, you can simply include a link to this page by using one of the sharing options below the bio or copying the URL from your browser’s address bar. You can also share my bio on social media by using one of those sharing options. So, let’s all share each other’s bios and learn more about one another.

As for Joan Myles, she’s the author of two poetry books and the mother of four children. You’ll find my review of her first collection, One with Willows, here. I plan to read and review her book that just came out, One Glittering Wing. I hope that after reading her bio, you’ll check out the rest of her blog and buy her books. Happy reading!

New! The Red Dress

Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books

Front cover contains: young, dark-haired woman in red dress holding flowers

When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.

Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.

One with Willows

By Joan Myles

Copyright 2019.


The poems in this little volume reflect on spirituality, nature, and other topics. Some have reference to certain aspects of Jewish culture, and notes with more information are included. An introduction explains how poetry sustained the author after her vision loss.

I met Joan a year or so ago when she joined Behind Our Eyes, an organization of writers with disabilities, of which I’m now president. Despite being totally blind, her poems display such vivid imagery. Each piece’s title gives you a basic idea of what it’s about. My favorite, “Tire Swing,” transported me back to a time when my father rigged a similar contraption in our front yard when I was growing up. Also, I found her glimpses into Jewish culture fascinating. Even if you’re not Jewish, these works should resonate with you, and this book is definitely not a long read.
