Error leads to error in Red Riding Hood’s Sister, as a girl in love finds her marriage has turned violent. The poems in this collection mix fairy tale and dream with the everyday to tell the story of a girl not so different from anyone else who finds herself in a desperate situation. Sarah Webb's 2018 memoir, Red Riding Hood’s Sister looks into abusive marriage. What traps us? What can set us free?
The poems in Black come in large or small ways from the peoples of all the major religions and shamanism. Poems call on the traditions of every continent as well as from ancients living before times in memory. I made up modern myths too and told stories from science and everyday life.

My aim in all of it was to find the root beneath the hints and stories. What is it that we all share, that we sense beneath the surface?

Cover, adapted from a drawing from years back

The drawing on the cover is one I did a few years back, adapted first by my tinkering on the computer and then by Reginna Schroeder to make a cover of it.  Reginna did a fabulous job on layout and typography--beautiful books.
