I am a writer and reader and teacher and forever student.

IMy chapbook of poetry, Ponderings, is available here or at Finishing Line Press. I am in the process of writing a memoir  about my late husband's long illness and eventual death from cancer. It is a story of my truce with grief.

My poem DINNER artwork by Anna GIlmore

Ponderings by Lisa St. John is a powerful look into the relationship between mother and daughter. Here is a poet who is not afraid of confrontation, and her courageous poems revisit the past where "There is something to be said for learning in a world of daughters. I am proud of my scars because they came from my mother. Ma, I never meant to love you."
