A passionate journey through private emotional moments, Diana Raab's Lust voices the pain of loneliness and the heart's yearning for love while transcending the depths of human desire. In her fourth book of poetry, Raab employs narrative verse that is alive, titillating, and seductive. Lust examines the emotional and physical complexity of love, helping readers navigate the risks of intimacy as we move toward the realization that every experience enriches our lives, whether we perceive it as joy, pain, or out of the ordinary. Yet for all their psychological richness, the poems's simplicity and accessibility will resonate with women and men across all walks of life. Lust is a book you won't put down and won't soon forget.

Diana Raab is an award-winning poet, memoirist, and believer in the healing power of the written word. She began crafting poems at the age of ten when her mother gave her her first Khalil Gibran journal to help her cope with her grandmother's suicide. A few years later she discovered the journals of diarist Anais Nin and learned that, like Raab, Nin began journaling as a result of loss (the loss of her father). Much of Raab's poetry has been inspired by Anais Nin's life and works. She is the author of four poetry collections, My Muse Undresses Me (2007); Dear Anais: My Life in Poems for You (2008); The Guilt Gene (2009); and Listening to Africa (2011). Her poetry and prose have appeared in numerous journals and anthologies including Rattle, Boiler Room Journal, Rosebud, Litchfield Review, Tonopah Review, South Florida Arts Journal, Prairie Wolf Press, The Citron Review, Writers' Journal, Common Ground Review, A Cafe in Space, The Toronto Quarterly, Snail Mail Review, New Mirage Journal, and others. She is editor of two anthologies, Writers and Their Notebooks (2010) and Writers on the Edge (2012), co-edited with James Brown. Both these collections include submissions from poets and prose writers. She has two memoirs, Regina's Closet: Finding My Grandmother's Secret Journal (winner of the 2009 Mom's Choice Award for Adult Nonfiction and the National Indie Excellence Award for Memoir), and Healing With Words: A Writer's Cancer Journey (winner of the 2011 Mom's Choice Award for Adult Nonfiction). Raab is a regular blogger for The Huffington Post and writes a monthly column for the Santa Barbara Sentinel, "The Mindful Word." She lives in Southern California with her husband and maltese poodle, Spunky. She has three grown children. Raab is currently working on her doctorate in psychology and is researching the healing power of writing and creativity.
