When NE Finery was first released I was Star Struck! I LOVED the cover shot by Elizabeth Wertz and wrote to the Editor Yvonne Blacker. The cover was so unexpected and surreal to me and I wrote that I wanted to be apart of NE Finery. When I nervously presented my ad to Yvonne Blacker, with a part of the poem from Ray Bradbury, Yvonne asked about the rest of the poem. Both Yvonne Blacker and Robert Brown felt the image was so strong that the poem detracted from the overall ad. Then in a very unexpected moment Yvonne Blacker added the entire poem on the adjacent page and I will be eternally grateful.
Here is the link to the page in NE Finery, and please peruse the entire issue, it is fabulous and includes more of my work!
