Beneath the Veil She Speaks

Debra Williby bares her soul and links to ours with her prose in "Beneath the Veil."

“Speaking through verse, Williby takes us on a journey within her own psyche and attributes her success as an Indie Poet to ‘a muse that visits her in the night.’ Often misunderstood, graced with a mental illness, and constantly battling depression, she finds sanctuary in the comforts of the outdoors. Nestled in the southern part of Mercer County, West Virginia, Deb’z resides in Oakvale on Blanche’s Beth Emek, the home place of her grandmother.”
