Praise For, I Am A Terrorist:

Through beautifully wrought poetry, Sarah Frances Moran dispels the fallacies of narrow, one-sided definitions of love. This poet convinces us "a kiss is a kiss. / And love is love... " Likewise, the complexity and range of human sexuality is a beauty to be cherished, not feared. Moran declares "I'm lovely... / ...an anomaly." And in these pages, you will feel the tender longing.

- Cathryn Shea, author of Snap Bean

Sarah Francis Moran is a terrorist and an artist burdened with the need to explain. In her powerful, tender loving and completely subversive poems she tells us that the great sin in her life is that she wants what we all want. Love passion romance and belonging. Her choice to chase and find love and to try to do it openly as a gay woman is the frame she builds this story around. The beauty of the realized collection though is in the ways she shows us how much we are all alike. These poems are powerful and elegant. They show as much respect for God as they do for her fellow human beings. She will show you the pain of being treated different for wanting something we all want, but so much more importantly, she will make you believe in love. -Matt Borczon, author of A Clock of Human Bones

 

 

________________________________________________

In this time of women’s rights and gender identity under attack, the collection of poems, “I am a Terrorist,” by Sarah Frances Moran is a manifesto. Moran issues a battle cry from the Texas penumbra, I am here, deal with it. These poems are smoldering and unafraid. With such titles as “Beautifully Doomed,” “How to Kiss a Girl,” and “She poemed all over me last night,” Moran walks head on into a brutally honest and passionate fire instead of leaping out of the way. And yet she also gently instructs the reader to “Remember just how soft those lips are when they meet and how the beauty in that kiss is the same beauty… for every kind of kiss.” Moran’s self-proclaimed doctrine is one of love and there is no sweeter love described than the one she writes about in this collection: accepting and all inclusive. - Jennifer MacBain-Stephens, author of “Your Best Asset is a White Lace Dress”
