trapped within

trapped within

the mind can be a delightful place of rest,
solitude and reflection.

the vastness of its architecture, the shifting of
its oscillating thought patterns

a virtual pinball machine
bouncing between the triangle of my existence

depression, fear, an infestation of doubt

doubt – that blocks my souls ability to balance
itself into any form of rhythm, beauty…sanity

I taste the flavor of death, watch the parade of faces


Kathy Rodgers' THE FINAL SALUTE #1 Amazon's Top-rated War Fiction based on customer reviews

After years of rejections, numerous revisions and too many roadblocks to mention, I am happy to report that my novel, THE FINAL SALUTE, Together We Live On, has made it to #1 on Amazon's Top-rated War Fiction based on customer reviews.

I am grateful to every single reader who took the time to post a review or tell a friend about my book. Many thanks to MWSA for believing in my story enough to award it a Silver Medal in 2009.

Buckaroo Bonus

  • Lucky Buckaroo Bonus Drawing – To add even more fun to the auction, the first two auction items will be “Eye Glass Repair Kits and Grocery Coupon Cards.” They will be numbered 1-37. After they are sold, I will hand five sealed envelopes to Joyce Gilmour who will open the fifth envelope first. The envelope will contain 1000 buckaroos and a number between 1-37. Whoever purchased the item with that number will receive the buckaroos. Joyce will then open the fourth envelope and so on.
