In a world seemingly gone madder in all the ways it shouldn’t, I invite you into one of my worlds, Coral Tree: A Costa Rican Canon. This collection is uprooted from my experiences in that luscious little country, cross-bred with magic realism and mystery, then replanted on the page. If you crave and carve time in your day for coffee or cognac with a book, Coral Tree is sweeter than a plate of cookies and as spicy as jalapeño hummus. Not completely sane but definitely non-toxic, it’s tropical sensibility in a manageable size. Ask for it in your favorite bookstore: Coral Tree: A Costa Rican Canon, ISBN 978-1-62288-153-7. Available on Amazon.com, or directly from the publisher: SFASU Press, Nacogdoches, 75962.
Have fun here and everywhere you go. If I can be of assistance, you now know where to find me.

”YOU’RE TRAVELING IN THE TROPICS, AWASH IN THE MUSIC AND AROMA OF Costa Rica. You experience passion beyond all sanity, an existence where al fits together but might vanish in an instant, and you discover a harsh reality that perhaps rules your life, too. CORAL TREE by Jennifer Weil is a beautiful, beautiful book.”
“CORAL TREE IS A SIREN SONG that makes me want to be in Costa Rica, not as a tourist, but long enough to know the air, the people, the sea… It has the quality of a song cycle as it moves from story to poetry and back again.”
And From the dust jacket of Eavesdropping:
