This year she has decided to enter the contest and make her grandmother's famous recipe for Blueberry Pie. By adding a secret unconventional ingredient of her own, she is sure her pie will be a shoo-in for the prize. But no one, not her parents, the other contestants, or the panel of judges is prepared for the uproarious end results.

Cracks in the Sidewalk


The association between bipolar disorder and creativity, especially poetry, first appeared in literature in the 1970’s, however, the idea of a link between “madness” and “genius” is much older, dating back at least to the time of Aristotle. This chapbook contains poems from a sometimes “mad” and sometimes “genius” mind hoping to inspire others to look for the peculiar beauty found growing out of the Cracks in the Sidewalk.

Available in paperback and E-book February 1st.
