In "Moments of Madness" (published by Balboa Press), author Merri Joy's new collection of poetry, readers are invited into her unique style of fun, quirky poetry coupled with silly illustrations to compliment her observations.

Joy invites readers into her hilariously twisted mind as they explore page after page of poems and insights designed to make them question how they perceive the world around them. With a different take on what is "normal," Joy takes readers on a whimsical ride of words that will have them rereading "Moments of Madness" for years to come. Readers will encounter thoughts on pimples, lawn gnomes, roundabouts and much, much more as they traverse her perception of the world.

An excerpt from "Bird Song" in "Moments of Madness":

"pretty bird, pretty bird
Sing me a song,
Don't take all day
Don't take too long,
Pretty bird, pretty bird
What do you say?
'drop dead stupid,...'"

It is the author's hope that readers will laugh at her mad ideas of how she sees the world.
