Lyhyt elämäkerta
Megan E. Hoffman is a free-verse poet and author of her debut novel, Biting Thorns Off Roses.
Fascinated by relationships with ourselves, each other, and the world around us, she writes to explore that which makes us all most profoundly human.
She is inspired by those who refuse to abide by the status quo; those who question, and relentlessly search for truth in all areas of life. Her greatest poetic influences and spiritual teachers are Mary Oliver, Rumi, and Baba Ram Dass.
An avid solo traveler, Hoffman has hiked and road-tripped all across the United States, carrying well-worn copies of some favorite books: Into the Wild by John Krakauer; When Breath Becomes Air by Paul Kalanithi; Wild by Cheryl Strayed.
In her downtime, you can find her lounging on empty beaches wherever they may be found, performing full concerts in the shower, or cruising across mountain roads with all the windows down, headbanging to Nirvana.
Megan E. Hoffman is a twenty-six year old, Vermont native. She lives in Los Angeles, CA with her two beloved dogs; Tsintah, and Tahoma. (July, 2023)

Exceptionally insightful poetry delving into human personas -- the proverbial different hats, or masks, we wear while negotiating life. Thought provoking and very well crafted. Brava! Janice M. Frum

Poetry is so difficult to review. What speaks to one person does not necessarily speak to the next.

Or, in this case, some parts of the book stop speaking. Hah. Okay, so... I really liked the first part - it spoke to me and I believe I was following the "story". I enjoyed the decorative pages. I did not have any difficulties determining where a poem started or ended. The author uses whitespace, blank space and large gaps intentionally, for emphasis... this works.

As the book reached the midway, however, I feel I lost the thread of the "story", what is tying this collection together? The poems became more... ahhh....abstract perhaps... or ambiguous? Not sure I can put my finger on it, but they felt farther away from what I could connect to. (yeah, sorry, not much help am I)… (lisätietoja)

This poetry was moving. You could feel the pain, the promise, the hope.

I got this book as part of the Early Reviewers program, and I really sat with it for the whole month, making my way through slowly. I think the collection really does do a good job of like, leading you through an entire journey. And some of the places it took me are places that I have been before, and so I really feel like I connected with the story being told in that way. If you don't like freeform poetry, or formatting as an art form, there might be some roadblocks in here for you. But I honestly love those things and for me, this was like following someone else's trail to healing, a return to self. It's so hard to review the value of that.… (lisätietoja)
