Praise For A Collection of Words
"Gudinski has a realistic and romantic lens at her disposal, and this gathering of thoughts and musings displays both her deep well of curiosity and dexterity with the written word.”
- Self-Publishing Review
"...a complex and satisfying poetic journey that will leave readers with many poignant questions to ponder."
- Readers' Favorite
"...more so than other poetry books, [A Collection of Words] encourages a literary dance between reader and writer. The stage is set for new doors of perception to open as Gudinski examines the reckless joys of music, love, life, and eventually decline and death."
