What is the name of the book and when was it published?
tourmaline. february 2019.

What’s the book’s first line?

What’s the book about? Give us the “pitch”. 
– the book is full of poetry about self-healing, rediscovering the self, shifting through trauma, emotional disturbances, mental afflictions, and spiritual rebirthings.

What inspired you to write the book? A particular person? An event? 
– it was sort of a natural onset of creative energies needing to come through. my own self-healing needed a tangible process and expression.

What’s the main reason someone should really read this book?
