Welcome to my little corner of the world. There are many things to explore on this site - new poetry and stories in the poetry corner and what is new and upcoming right here on the main page just to mention a few things. Have fun exploring and I will have fun updating and adding things as often as possible.
A Moment in Time
Imagine if you could trace your beginnings to a specific moment in time. If that specific moment had never happened, your existence – and everything and everybody you have influenced – would never have happened. “A Moment in Time” is a poetic journey into the world of adult adoptee A J Bialo and her firsthand experience of being adopted.
A J focuses on many topics that adoptees, including herself, have experienced as a result of being adopted. Some of these topics include abandonment and relationship issues, feelings of not belonging and being the outsider always looking in, pondering what our lives would be like if we had not been adopted, and considerations and road blocks that we must consider when thinking about searching for our biological family.
While “A Moment in Time” is designed to reach the millions of adoptees in the United States, it is also meant for all readers, adopted or not, to better understand the adoptee journey through this insightful and intense collection of poetry.
Coming in the Winter of 2022
It's 1978, the year of three popes, and Cardinal Joshua Argus has his eye on becoming the next pope at any cost. To achieve his goal, he must do two things: make sure there is an opening for the position that he wants and to clean up his past to avoid a scandalous ascension to the papacy.
Standing in his way is a young rookie detective for the Syracuse Police Department named Kathryn Krol. Kathryn is partnered with a seasoned veteran detective named Angelo Marcello. Weary of having a female partner, Angelo reluctantly shows her the ropes of being a detective. When she shares with him a recurring dream of a nun being murdered crucifixion style, he starts to seriously doubt if she is cut out to be a detective. That is until they are assigned a murder case that matches her dream in every detail. As they continue their investigation, they realize that the Cardinal is connected to the murder spree that spans across New York State. But with the Cardinal now safely in Rome and beyond New York law, will they be able to stop him before he commits the ultimate murder from within the Vatican?
