THOUGH YOU
WERE BRUISED
IN CONFLICT
YOU ARE
NO LESS
DIAMOND.

Abandoned by her hustling father, raised by her devoted mother, then battered by the winds of loss, heartbreak, and sexual assault, awarded Diversity & Inclusion Leader, poet and author Nikki Murphy exposes the undercurrents of resilience and faith that undergird her success in this riveting memoir-in-verse. 

Home for Hurricanes: A Memoir of Resilience in Poetry and Prose provides a sobering portrayal of both the jubilance and hardening of Black girls emanating from the ghettos, and celebrates their resolve to build free and whole lives. 


In her debut poetry collection, Murphy invites readers to witness her hard-fought journey to find healing, love, and gratitude.


No matter where you are in weathering the storms of trauma, you will be reminded you are built to withstand.

This is brilliant and beautiful and touching all the parts of my heart that I reserve for the magic of black girlhood. This was an amazing collection of poetry. I know I will be thinking about many of these poems for years to come. I love that this is both a celebration of black girlhood and a testimony to their vulnerability. I feel seen.

Asha L. French, Ph.D.

Home for Hurricanes is a beautiful memoir in verse about identity, trauma, and healing. It is a collection that is by turns thought-provoking, gut-wrenching, and resonant. The author writes about being Black, about coming of age as a young woman, about experiencing sexual assault, and about finding healing and love. I'm not a big poetry reader but this collection really struck a chord with me...

Beautifully Bookish Bethany

There’s something about poetry that either makes me confused and bored or makes me have goosebumps and say “wow” every time I turn a page. I’m happy to say this book falls into the second category... this book is powerful, real, raw, and beautiful.
