Mary Petiet is a writer, poet, and publisher from Cape Cod where her work is deeply influenced by the Cape's nature and inspirational energy. Her work emphasizes our connection to each other and the natural world with a focus on positive empowerment. Mary has contributed to many books and journals and is the author of several titles. She is the founder of Massachusetts-based independent publishing company Sea Crow Press.

The New Mary Oliver

Some have compared Petiet's work to Thoreau, but to my mind these poems are more reminiscent of Mary Oliver. While the sense of place is similar to walking with Thoreau, the writing has the sensory power of Oliver--I love the way the author brings the smells of sea and sand, and the landscape, to life throughout. I live in the Rockies, but reading this I'm brought right back to the Cape, to weathered gray houses and frogs in the marsh and the constant presence of the sea like its own person.

Worthy of a spot on the shelf next to Thoreau

We are lucky enough to live in the quiet, historic district of Cape Cod, and we, like many Cape Codders, are big fans of Petiet's writing. Moon Tide is positively beautiful. The imagery Petiet conjures up for the reader is so clear--and she celebrates all the things we love about "olde Cape Cod"--hidden away stone walls, worn cedar shingles, the sounds of the gentle tides, the creaks of old homes and the rustling of cedars. Every one of these poems is extremely well written--smart, funny, whimsical, sensual--and they all swirl together perfectly to give the reader a magical Cape Cod escape without leaving the couch. We cannot wait for her next one! BRAVO!!"
