Reviews of my work:
Your use of language feels less like mastery and more like partnership…as though sometimes your words might participate–seduce and scorn, dovetail and derail each other. It’s a measured dance without set steps: Intriguing. Madeleine Marzio, author.
Lance’s writings are remarkable. I’ve followed him for several years now, and he has improved his works to excellence. They’re ripe with action and a beautiful way to live in a world unknown to many. Barbara Kasey Smith, published poet.
Lance creates a canvas painted with care and precision that allows the reader to complete the picture, or draw their own conclusions. We, in effect, interpret his genius. We bask in the light of his gift. Anna Waldherr, writer.
A pinnacle poet. Reading, I find myself, nose pressed between pages of Yeats, Longfellow, Browning, Whitman. His poetry, I see as flowing streams, hear as melody… the words like prayers tuck themselves within all the cracks within my heart. Laura M. Bailey, writer.
In his poem, Body’s Raw Wound, Lance Sheridan has presented us with the beautiful and wrenchingly painful translation of those utterances from which we heretofore could only vaguely divine the heart and mind of the werewolf. The fact that it is presented in three tight perfectly metered septet stanzas does nothing to diminish the visceral burning terror of the transformation, revealing the careful precision and soul of his art. Lona Gynt, writer/poet.

I’m sarcastic, have an offbeat sense of humor, am a purveyor of words and imagery, dislike jiggery-pokery, and love to write, read, and drink coffee.
