In Finding Gloria the author shares her inspiring story of forgiveness and healing.

Moondust and Madness: a collection of poetry

While most people can rise out of despair by talking, Marianne Curtis picked up her pen and wrote her way back to sanity.

Moondust and Madness: a collection of poetry is taken from the author’s personal diary written during the darkest and happiest times of her life. Each piece reflects joy or heartbreak; some celebrate new life while others mourn great loss.

The end result is this compilation – a collection with a cause. Funds raised through the sale of this book will go to the Kids Help Phone.
