5.0 out of 5 stars but the writing style itself shows great diversity – some poetry seeming to contain hidden meaning ...

Chicken Soup and a Shot of Jack is everything it professes to be. There is a wide range of emotions masterfully expressed in each story and poem, each of them giving a glimpse into the author’s many life experiences. Not only is there a variety of emotions expressed, but the writing style itself shows great diversity – some poetry seeming to contain hidden meaning that would take hours of discussion and analysis to understand, and other stories written just like a frank conversation.

More than anything while reading the book, I found myself reflecting on my own life, as well as the lives of the people around me who I take for granted. The cliché description of “thought-provoking” is completely accurate when describing Chicken Soup and a Shot of Jack. The layout of the book draws you in, alternating between short stories and poems, so that you want to continue on and read just one more until without even realizing it you have finished the entire collection.

Well worth your time and money. Highly recommend.


"This poet speaks from his heart and is not afraid to tell you the truth.  You may not always like what he says, but because of the way it is presented, you will have to take it, and make a change."--Yvonne Johnson
