About the Author

Trista Mateer is a visual artist, poet, writer and freelance editor who began putting words on paper at twelve and never found a good enough reason to stop. Known for her eponymous blog, she is now the author of multiple poetry collections, including When The Stars Wrote Back (2020), Aphrodite Made Me Do It (2019), Honeybee (2018), and The Dogs I Have Kissed (2015) which won a Goodreads Choice Award the year of its release. She currently lives in a house by the sea in New Jersey; and when she's not wrangling her cat, Honeybun, she stares out at the water and waits for the words to wash ashore. You can keep up with her @tristamateer on Instagram and Twitter and visit her website at tristamateer.com

Reviews

"In Honeybee, Trista Mateer expertly exposes the intensity of first love. The longing. The ache. The end that seems to come even swifter than the beginning. The strangers you become--or always were. The way the things left unsaid haunt you for years afterward. If you've ever been unlucky enough to fall for somebody, you will undoubtedly find yourself reflected in Mateer's spell-casting words. This is a collection that will beg you to be dogeared, coffee-stained, & shared." --Amanda Lovelace, author, The Princess Saves Herself in This One, "10 Feminist Poets Who Will Leave You Stronger Than Before" POPSUGAR, June 2017
"Bitter sweet with memory and softness, this book is an intimate and profound look at sexuality, heartbreak, loneliness, loss, love, healing and everything in between." --Nikita Gill, author, Your Soul is a River
"In Honeybee, Trista Mateer spares no one and nothing and the result is beautiful and awful and gorgeous and gut-wrenching." --Fortesa Latifi, author, No Matter the Time
"With Honeybee, Trista has captured in amber something beautiful and tragic, joyful and painful. It's a powerful book and Trista Mateer is a powerful, loud voice in contemporary poetry." --Iain S. Thomas, author, I Wrote This For You
"How can something that hurts so much still be so tender? That's the question one asks over and and over while reading Mateer's work . . . . It's letting go, but not knowing how to do it without exploring every inch of what's being let go first. Mateer triumphs in this exploration. We are humbled to be witness." --Ari Eastman, staff writer, Thought Catalog and author, Bloodline
"Trista writes about love so honestly. It's messy, reckless hope. It's sticky-fingered stubbornness. This collection is a must-read for any queer femme, and for anyone who has ever lost themselves in a feverish want." --Clementine von Radics, author, Mouthful of Forevers
