Kite in the Wind
Local life and scenery comes alive in the Imagery in every poem. Simple or life changing events become inspirational when Elaine McDermott uses the extraordinary to capture the ordinary.

Wonderful collection of poems! McDermott is such a skilled writer. Her use of symbolism, imagery, and figurative language are laced throughout each of the poems, which makes it difficult to stop turning the pages. The poems take you on a journey of emotions—you laugh, cry, smile, and empathize. A truly enjoyable read from cover to cover.

I just finished reading Elaine McDermott's new poetry collection, Kite in the Wind. I couldn't put it down. Each poem expertly describes a person or situation we all can relate to our own lives. Her astute observations show the reader things that often are overlooked in our busy lives. This book is a winner.
