"Debbie Richard (right) explores the beauty and honesty of love, regret, loss and the feelings that come after all of it. There is a delicacy and maturity in her frankness." (Carrie McCullough Jenkins, freelance editor/publishing consultant.)

"Debbie Richard, in her poems, poignantly observes the values and needs, the pains and joys, in the human and natural worlds. She meshes all with the spiritual, her appreciation showered with grace, honesty, and love, and, finally, acceptance of what she cannot change. I love her poems." (David Selby renown actor and the author of My Mother's Autumn and Promises of Love.)
