Jewel has been writing poems and keeping journals since childhood. 'A Night Without Armor', her first collection of poetry, explores the fire of first love, the fading of passion, the giving of trust, the lessons of betrayal, and the healing of intimacy.
She delves into matters of the home, the comfort of family, the beauty of Alaska, and the dislocation of divorce. And then there are the images of the road, the people, the bars and planes, places exotic and mundane, loneliness and friendship.
Frank and honest, serious and suddenly playful, this is a talented artist's intimate portrait of what makes us uniquely human.
