    Dr. Liz’ Pocket Book of Poems is subtitled a companion to Dr. Liz’ Life Launch series, which includes her Amazon #1, multi-international, best-selling memoir: Life Launch! Surviving the Storms of Physical and Sexual Abuse, Book One, and soon to be published Life Launch! Book 2: A New Dawn of Healing and Recovery. 
    In Dr. Liz’ Pocketbook of Poems, Book 3, she shares with her reader her entire body of poetry that she has written since she was 12 years old. The majority of these works were written as an outlet to self-soothe during her own teen and young adult years that Dr. Liz recounted in her best-selling memoir: living in abusive environments; navigating the tragic, accidental death of her older, only brother and other family and friends’ suicides; and her own struggles with drug and alcohol abuse. Indeed, in this book she shares through rhyme and prose her struggle to make sense of these traumatic experiences, and further, how they fuel her desire to help others (YOU) find hope, healing and a renewed passion for your lives and know that you are not alone in your journey. 
    This is Book Three of a 3-book series. Life Launch! Book Two (coming soon) will reveal the struggles Dr. Liz overcame during the 2nd half of her life: the suicide of her husband, the death of her father, abusive relationships, and being engaged at one time to a man who later became the Butcher of Brooklyn. 
    15% OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS BOOK WILL BE DONATED TO CHARITIES THAT SUPPORT MENTAL HEALTH (through the author’s own BJD Memorial Rainbow of Hope Charitable Foundation for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention that she established in memory of her husband, as well as too many friends and family members, who died by suicide or other tragic means).

    Lewis Carroll was born Charles Lutwidge Dodgson on the 27th January 1832 at Daresbury, Cheshire, the eldest boy and the third child.  Another eight followed.   
     
    When Dodgson was 11, his cleric father moved his family to Croft-on-Tees in the North Riding of Yorkshire.  Although his father was active and highly conservative his son was ambivalent with those values and with the Church as a whole. 
     
    In his early years Dodgson was educated at home and by age 7 he was reading the likes of ‘The Pilgrim's Progress’.  He also spoke with a stammer which he called his ‘hesitation’. 
     
    At 12 he was dispatched to Richmond Grammar School in North Yorkshire and then on to Rugby.  He sailed through the curriculum.  He was accepted at Christ Church, Oxford but two days after arriving he was summoned home: his mother had died of ‘inflammation of the brain’ at only 47. 
     
    Dodgson was exceptionally gifted and, when not distracted, achievement came easily to him.  He remained at Christ Church studying and teaching in various capacities until his death. 
     
    In March 1856, he published the romantic poem ‘Solitude’ as by ‘Lewis Carroll’.  
     
    That same year he took up the new art of photography.  He soon excelled and became a well-known gentleman-photographer, and even toyed with the idea of making a living out of it.  When he ceased photography in 1880, he had his own studio and had created around 3,000 images. 
     
    He enjoyed moderate success with his early poems and short stories but had an array of other interests in the pre-Raphaelite circle, Psychical Research and even ordained in the Church of England in 1861.  
     
    In July 1862 he told a young Alice Liddell the story that would become his first and greatest success.  Alice begged him to write it down, and eventually he did and later presented her with a handwritten and illustrated ‘Alice's Adventures Under Ground’.  The publisher Macmillan agreed to publish it as ‘Alice's Adventures in Wonderland’ by Lewis Carroll.  
     
    It was a huge and sensational life-changing success.  Royalties quickly accumulated as did fan mail.  
     
    In 1871, the darker themed sequel ‘Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There’ was published.  A half decade later came ‘The Hunting of the Snark’, a fantastical nonsense poem, as nine tradesmen and a beaver set off to find the snark.  It was another enormous success. 
     
    He also loved to invent such delights as a writing tablet ‘the nyctograph’ that allowed note-taking in the dark as well as many word games, such as the precursor to ‘Scrabble’, and alternative systems of parliamentary voting.  Within the discipline of mathematics, he worked in geometry, linear and matrix algebra, mathematical logic, recreational mathematics and wrote nearly a dozen books on the subject.   
     
    Lewis Carroll died of pneumonia following influenza on 14th January 1898 in Guildford, Surrey.  He was 65.

    “This fiery retrospective collection” of poetry by the acclaimed Chicano-American author of A Place to Stand is “warm and furious…righteous and prayerful” (Booklist). 
     
    Award-winning writer Jimmy Santiago Baca is lauded for his talent in weaving personal and political threads to create a pertinent and poignant narrative. He addresses universal issues with passion, grace, and vivid sensory detail. 
     
    Singing at the Gates is a collection of Baca’s work stretching across four decades—poems that revitalize the national dialogue: raging against war and imprisonment, celebrating family and the bonds of friendship, heightening appreciation for and consciousness of the environment. A career-spanning selection, it includes poems drawn from Baca’s first chapbook, letters he wrote from prison to a woman named Mariposa, and recent meditations on the significance of breaking through oppression.
