Reviewing for Stilts, Aimee Lindorff writes:

“They call you a graveyard poet. It’s a sombre title… But you bound to the mic in teal with your purple hair, and read with a fervour that belies your designation. Your dress is amazing and your prose is striking. A certain melancholy mixed with longing and nostalgia. Voices of the dead fill Riverbend like mist. It’s a celebration, a lament painted in the warm glow of memory. Your prose is honest, open, and urgent, and there’s something intoxicating about the spaces you paint.”
