Analogies and Myths

David C. Kopaska Merkel reviews my 2009 poetry collection Tales from the Holograph Woods at Amazon. com. " This is a wonderful book and I think you need to read it. After you do, it will probably stick with you."  From "Wild things":


out of the midnight forest
they follow you home like shadow
they live in your walls and rafters
in forgotten backs of cupboards
you know their shapes
but will not name them.

From 49th Shelf: Quick-Hits Strange and Otherworldly " In Quick Hits, we look through our stacks to bring you books that, when they were published, elicited a lot of reaction and praise. Our selections will include books published this year, last year, or any year. They will be from any genre. The best books are timeless, and they deserve to find readers whenever and wherever."

Sophie, in Shadow is reviewed in the  University of British Columbia's  2015 Ubyssey Book Supplement. "In an endless sea of pale girls peering out from under dark bangs plastered on every book cover in the young adult section of Chapters, Eileen Kernaghan’s newest novel, Sophie, in Shadow, stands out against the masses."
