Soliloquy: Beyond Town Limits:Imperfect Lives, Empowered Choices
by Ann Marie O’Dell and Dene Hellman (NEW)
From sisters dancing in an art festival in search of the perfect garden bench to Frienemies speckled with pigeon shit, “Soliloquy: Beyond Town Limits” progresses through the hidden realms of child molesting, and animal hoarding. We coast the Midwest backroads through every momʼs nightmare of a lost child, and the drama of “fifty shades of ordinary.” A verbal nightcap awaits the reader at the end of the book with two lesbians and a cat, and a psychic in a red neck town. Family dynamics, the many dimensions of friendship, the traumas of the young, and the resignation of old age – all find voices in this anthology.

An Explosion of Toads – A Celebration of Eccentricity
by Dene Hellman and Annie O’Dell
An Explosion of Toads: A Celebration of Eccentricity reads like seventy-one poetic mini-novels on the out-of-the-ordinary people one can’t stop watching on the street.
An anguished wife dismembers her husband’s body; a bored couple worships their cat, Feng Shui “Century” farmers, ADD children, tarot readers, a pocket-change grocery shopper, hot steamy couples, packing house workers, victims of the storm, church ghosts, and passionate Nigerian Southern Baptists all tell their poetic stories. Ending sweetly, two loving, traveling friends of different races endure each other’s hair spray and snoring.
Swirls on a Green Plate – A rare book no longer in print
by Annie O’Dell and Dene Hellman
POETRY FOR STRONG WOMEN:
When in crisis be strong. Dance, dance, dance! Amongst poetry themes are facial scars, wrinkles, highway driving and work, mini pads, malls, widowhood, big butts, cats and meeting the Lord in bunny slippers. Even death brings humor as a scarlet plumed horse is planned at mothers request, to bear her body in her favorite red boots. Embrace the sacred feminine through mother/daughter humor.
