It’s taken many years to spin the complex threads of my far-reaching literary web. I toiled on a typewriter and then a word-processor for most of them until Susan Sheppard gifted me her Gateway computer in February of 2004. She first wrote to me more than twenty-five years ago after reading one of my books just as I wrote Anais Nin a poem and fan letter in the Sixties. That began over four decades of our friendship…

Anais Nin was a prolific role model who dared to write experimental lyrical prose as well her monumental Diaries which continue to motivate readers more than a quarter of a century after her passing. Moira Collins is the owner/supporter of the Nin web site anaisnin.com.

Just as Anais had a vision of her “Café in Space,” perhaps my web will enfold a few readers. I offer you artistic creations with links to other artists, poets and writers whose contemporary and unconventional productions I greatly admire and recommend. All books and my papers are archived at: U. of Iowa Special Collections.

Magdalena Maczuga (Furniss) has illustrated 90% of Rochelle’s books over many years. She was a former student of hers when Holt was writer-in-residence and English teacher at Elizabeth High School in Elizabeth, NJ 1987-1994
