Author Deleonora Abel says, “Desire informs much of my work … and life.  She adds lustre, depth and meaning.  My world is ashen without her.  ‘The Little Black Book of Verse’ is the cumulative result of 15 years’ poetic reflection.  I never planned to write a book of poetry.  Rather, these ‘stories’ coalesced and emerged after three nomadic years abroad and surrendering to an interminable case of writer’s  block.”
