In Bad Red Shoes, her first collection of poetry, Betty delves into intimate recollections. Drive with her as she delivers her father's ashes to their final destination, feel the chills as she recalls the fateful words of a murdered friend. Whether she's proclaiming a new holiday - "Mother-less-day", chastising an ex-lover, or dancing with her first grandchild in her arms, Betty's poems tell stories that will touch you at the very core of your heart. She sings of her childhood and love for West Virginia, recalling her trek through Catholic schools to painting her very own rainbow stones on a wall in her back yard. There is humor and satire, as evidenced by the poem Bad Red Shoes, and it is up to you, the reader, to determine just where the truth ends and fiction begins. Happy reading!
