"This is a book about making a book, how one writer turns the fairy dust of imagination into real talk. It shows the growth of a full-scale work of art out of a transitory image, thus bridging the psychological and the spiritual, the person and the world s/he lives in."" -from Crown Us With Laurel “What a lovely book: lovingly told, informative and inviting. The story of a woman coming into writing does much for our understanding of the creative process. Here’s a book that takes us through the inside and outside of a woman’s writing journey. At the end, we discover that it is all in our hands, this writing, and in our hearts. Do we dare?” -MeMe Riordan, Professor Emeritus, English Department City College of San Francisco “With her usual passion and intensity – it gives me pause that that could be usual, but with Lois it surely is – with her usual passion and intensity, Lois has created a tender, wild and revealing autobiographical journey. A journey that is not a gentle meander through the meadow or along the sidewalk of the shopping mall, but is a strong emotional journey of slashing a path through a sometimes painful thicket of self discovery. She has written herself into meaning – once again. Brava.” -Sue von Baeyer, PhD "
