Collection of Poetry: Introducing the Valley of Cattong with Deputy Dawg and Miss Kitty
by Cynthia L. Haltom

In her debut collection of poetry, Cynthia L. Haltom invites readers into a world of sorrow, of bitterness and heartbreak, of obsession and, finally, of redemption and love. These pieces reflect a difficult time in Haltomís life, about her family as they saw her and as she saw herself. Her health, near-death experience, and awakening gave her a new appreciation for life.

Vivid imagery and creative wordplay accentuate A Collection of Poetry, allowing readers to feel the highs and lows. More than just a reflection of one womanís journey, these poems call out to readers and haunt their psyches. Haltomís writing is powerful and fierce and will touch you in deep in your soul.

Along with her collection of verse, Haltom introduces us to her fiction writing in ďThe Adventures of Deputy Dawg and Miss Kitty in the Valley of Cattong,Ē her first in a series of pieces about her family cat, Deputy Dawg, and his adventures in Cattong Valley. This sweet and funny story is a lovely addition to the collection and brings a bright and fitting close to Haltomís work.
