She Had Known Me Forever

The January 2014 issue of Foliate Oak Literary Magazine is out. It’s a beautiful issue in general…but specifically, it features my essay “She Had Known Me Forever” in the Creative Nonfiction section. This essay is my most emotionally profound to date, as I discuss the emotional aftermath of my sister’s murder…and how that loss ultimately connected me with my best friend. Through the darkness, there is always light. I hope that you will enjoy and respect my vulnerability, as I share another delicate part of my story.

  1. As painful as it was you told your story well. Your feeling of lost, confusion and pain came out. It must have been hard for a young girl to understand and cope with the lost of a sibling so violently. My heart goes out to you.

  2. Hi Michele,
    I read your story “She Had Known Me Forever,” and was quite touched. I’m relieved that you were eventually able to find the light through your darkness. Keep on writing. It’s food for the soul, and you’re doing a great job! Lorlinda
