Fugue in Green (Quattro Books, late 2017) is a gothic fairy tale. Two teens struggle with their psychotic mother as they seek asylum with their father. In resonant, echoing images of psychic connections between characters, a tale of abuse, madness, love and release emerges. Sumptuously written, the book is full of visions and deep understanding of the nascent creative mind and its relationship to nature.

Tidal Fury (Guernica Editions, 2016) is an inaugural collection by a unique, powerfully evocative and imaginative voice. In language that haunts our throats, Tidal Fury is a poetry on the edge of the text of an interior ocean of fury and passion. The collection includes artwork from the poet.

the luminist poems, a chapbook (LyricalMyrical Press, 2013, SOLD OUT), a romance, its dazzling and dangerous light, questions the paradoxes of who we are before the text blazes into visionary rapture.

"Brenda Clews offers us a pellucid voice that presents and interprets so clearly, it is almost as if light is shining through each one of the magnificent images in these mysterious poems." -John F. Walter
