WINNER of the 2015 Mary Ballard Poetry Chapbook Prize

The poems in Children Born on the Wrong Side of the River take us through the isolation, hardship, and strength of a woman who marries, births, and loses children born alongside the riverbank of her homestead. 

"The brutality of life 'on the wrong side of the river' is brilliantly counterpointed by the elegance of lyrical diction and unforgettable imagery." 
-- Larry Thomas, former Poet Laureate of Texas and author, Where Skulls Speak Wind 

"A poignant collection of haunting spells spoken in southern dialect, conjured amongst the wooded mountains of Kentucky. Rarely have I read poems that touched me so profoundly." 
--Darlene Franklin Campbell, author of Uncommon Clay and Touched
