Books by Barbara Myers
"Books for armchair travellers and writing groups are both time honoured traditions and Whistle for Jellyfish unites them in a delightful anthology that takes a reader to destinations
both exotic and fantastical."
~ CANADIAN BOOKSELLER MAGAZINE
"These poems are patient and wise. They invite, rather than alert, accost, or besiege. Their words, chosen for their quiet particularity, communicate rather than display."
~ STEPHANIE BOLSTER
