Poetry Collection: The Lady from Across the Sea

The Lady from across the Sea is in love with a world broken into a glorious prism of humanity. Rijsdijk renders the power of the mothers, the tragedy of the lovers, and the struggle of the forgotten in such clear tones and immersive scenes that she gives her readers permission to surrender to the waves. – Sean Felix

The Lady from across the Sea is the author’s second poetry collection. It is available in my shop.

Poetry Collection: Portraits of Girls I Never Met

“The best portraits are the ones made with empathy. They are the ones that show you something of the inner life of the person portrayed, a glimpse into the worlds that hide behind appearances more easily grasped. This book is a collection of those glimpses, thoughts and feelings given by the hand of a writer who understands what it is like to be human. It’s all there, and it’s painful and beautiful.” – Sofia Romualdo

‘Portraits of Girls I never Met’ is a collection of short stories and poems dealing with loss, love and other growing pains. It is available in my shop.
