Bombshelter Press, 2008 136pp
First collection of work by the Los Angeles writer. In four sections: Girl, Woman, Wife, Mother. Book web site: secretsofmysex.com.
This collection sparks with poems that are bright and fierce—comets cutting through the mundane.

Bella Mahaya Carter's insightful journey into womanhood made me blush, laugh, cry and cackle like a joyful witch. In the end, this authentic and daring collection left me feeling grateful I was born female. It should be mandatory reading not just for our sisters and daughters, but more importantly, for our husbands and our sons.
