Venus Freezing is a rhythmic, tangoing of words — a lyrical anomaly of verse and hard-hitting imagery. The book’s title was inspired by the captivating ink and oil called Sine Cerere et Libero friget Venus (Without Ceres and Bacchus, Venus Would Freeze, c. 1600 - 1603), which was created by the Dutch graphic artist and painter Hendrick Goltzius, c. 1558 - 1617. Much like in her initial collection, Bagging the Phoenix, the author writes from the perspective of rebirth. The author began writing the selections immediately after publishing her first collection. Venus Freezing comprises Congelata, Sanguine, Opera, and Intuito — four distinctive chapters that accompany a cautious, malleable heart through evident processes of growth. The brand new prose in Venus Freezing melds blunt-force candor with facetious humor to create a quick-witted read. Her interpretive verbiage continues to challenge the emotional psyche. Venus Freezing also provides a glimpse into the creative eye of the artist with thematic, illustrative elements throughout. The book features the author’s black and white, film-based photography.
