“A startlingly good book of poetry for teens…a gem!”

A great review of my collection of fantastical poetry, I Tumble Through the Diamond Dust, illustrated by my niece, Wendi Nordell, is now online, after previously appearing only in print in Resource Links, which reviews books for school libraries.


“In April 2016, Saskatchewan’s then–poet laureate Gerald Hill sent members of the Saskatchewan Writers’ Guild two lines of poetry each day and challenged the recipients “to create new work either inspired by or incorporating those lines.” Edward Willett…succeeded brilliantly at the challenge, yielding a book of poems that will delight and intrigue anyone who enjoys poetry — and that may win over readers who think they don’t, too.

I Tumble Through the Diamond Dust is a startlingly good book of poetry for teens. Its twenty-one free verse poems are by turns funny, moody, thought-provoking, and dazzling…
