By the Bones is a graveyard of poems about monsters, madness, and the inevitable darkness that comes for us all.
Within these pages live a coven of witches, a hungry Wendigo, a Necromancer, and more ghosts and skeletons than I can say. You’ll also get a glimpse into real places – like the “suicide forest” of Japan, the Body Farm of Tennessee, or the infamous Catacombs of Paris – and witness their haunted memories for yourself.
By the Bones is a graveyard, but readers beware – You may not want to visit alone.

Let’s start with the cover, awesome sugar skull.
The poems are deep, emotional, and thought-provoking.
I took my time and read one each day so that I could invest thought into each one.
Happy to have purchased this book.
Looking forward to future publications.
This is an impressive book of poems with one subject matter… Bones. Ms. Crittenden has imagined, captured, and communicated several stories, thoughts, and mental images about Bones and their presence in a wide variety of poetry forms. I loved reading every one for its purpose and creativity. Ms. Crittenden has a great talent for expression and putting it to form then Paper!
