    Tricia, when is the play, mini-series, or movie, based on your book coming out?!!!

    What an amazing collection of poetry, prose, culture, spirituality, and slices inside the author’s inner being. Tricia uses words like she dances, with twists and curves. I thoroughly enjoyed turning every page and highly recommend this book!
