ADVANCE PRAISE FOR CRIES TO KILL THE CORPSE FLOWER 


"With lush language and imagery that draws from nature's decay, Cries to Kill the Corpse Flower is a spellbinding poetry collection with a decidedly fairy tale and folk horror flare. Brutal and beautiful in equal measure, this is a breathtaking debut." 

-- Gwendolyn Kiste, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of The Rust Maidens
