Editorial Reviews for Fixing Boo Boo; A Story of Traumatic Brain Injury
Fixing Boo Boo is heartwarming, informative, and funny from a sister who chose to be a caregiver not knowing what she didn't know about brain injury. It's the story of 9,000 families every year in Florida who give up their lives to care for their loved one.
Valerie Breen, Former CEO, Brain Injury Association of Florida
Fixing Boo Boo provides a great perspective! Many caregivers will relate to it and just as important, it will invoke thought about disability sensitivity from others that have not been touched by disability…yet.
It’s a great read!
David C. Jones, President, Florida Disabled Outdoors Association
Editorial Reviews for Proverbs of My Seasons; Poetry of Transition
In this volume of poetry, Pat Stanford shares the uneven, and sometimes turbulent journey from youth to maturity. To read these mostly rhyming poems is to recall one’s own path through life.
Saundra Gerrell Kelley, The Day the Mirror Cried (poetry, and short stories from oral tradition storyteller’s tales)
Although I rarely read poetry, in reviewing this book, I recalled events from my many (more eventful than most) years which brought back strong memories for me, sometimes surprisingly similar and sometimes with new viewpoints.
Phil Marks, Editor
Editorial Reviews for A Motley Miscellany; Misfit Poems That Fit Together
You don't have to be a lover of poetry to love this collection of poems. A motley collection, perhaps, but a welcome respite from the banal and boring writings of pretentious poets.
Mark Barie, War Calls, Love Cries (Historical fiction set during the Civil War)
A Motley Miscellany by Pat Stanford is a compendium of poetry reminiscent of a harlequin's costume in variety, with pages running riot with humor, longing, and memories. The last chapter is the jester's offering of Pietry - poems about pies, with recipes included, from a few of Stanford's friends. What better way to conclude a good read?
