My new book, Bourbon and Branch Water, published by Kelsay Books is out and available. You can buy it from Kelsay or Amazon or on this website, cedarkoons.com, (where you will receive an signed copy.) I hope you will buy a copy or get your library to get one.
The poems are about my childhood in Kentucky and my middle years in North Carolina with some New Mexico works to celebrate this place that has become my home. The collection includes formal verse free verse. And because I possess a poetic license not all of them are factually correct. In one poem I have three children, for example. Not sure where that extra child came from! Though I've written and published poetry since I was in my teens this is my first full-length book of poems. It just goes to show it is never too late to live your dreams! Carpe Diem.
