A lyrical journey through illness, wellness, Hepatitis C and virus as metaphor. Goldberg lived with Hepatitis C for 45 years before being cured in 2015 with the breakthrough new drug Harvoni. She wrote Undetectable in the Japanese literary style of haibun – a travel diary paired with haiku – as she wandered the streets and forests of Nanaimo, BC, during her 84 days of treatment, meditating on all things undetectable.
A graffiti-strewn poem diary of homelessness in Nanaimo, BC. Red Zone has been taught in university literature courses. Reviewers have compared it to the writings of Allen Ginsberg, Marge Piercy, and John Steinbeck. Goldberg spent three years wandering the streets, alleys, squats and vacant lots of downtown Nanaimo while composing this lyrical and photographic portrait of life on the streets.

(originally published 2007
Leaf Press, Lantzville BC)
A collection of 66 poems structured around the 66-move sequence of Liuhebafa, a 1,000-year-old martial art from China that the author has studied since 1997. According to legend and Taoist practice, Liuhebafa is considered to be a recipe for internal alchemy and even immortality. In addition to poems, Ride Backwards on Dragon contains 30 pages of endnotes decoding the Taoist metaphysical symbolism of the 66 ancient titles – information never before published in English. The book was a finalist for Canada’s Gerald Lampert Award.
