I have portrayed a love lived in verse for only in verse can I cry tears, only in verse can I remember the love that was. My life. My love. My heart. My love for one woman. Brigitte. A buffalo's tale is a love story. A story of love for Brigitte. A love story told in verse . The joy of love and the pain of love expressed in words that convey the tears.

This volume is an insightful compilation of wit, humor, political commentary, soul-searching, and love. Theresa tackles a variety of themes from lighthearted glimpses of family and friends to more thought-provoking discussions of good and evil. While her book primarily features free-verse, there is also a sprinkling of Haiku, limerick, and a sonnet.
East West Michigan City is the hometown of Northville homicide detective Xander Nicholson. While his partner Dan Gold deals with the Chicken Man in Northville, Xander assists his old friend Suzie and Kyle, her current boyfriend. Obviously, East West Michigan City is not the ideal place for a wild animal safari park, but while investigating the odd crime that has landed Kyle in jail, Xander discovers one being built in the small town. Smelling trouble, Xander rallies his friends and family to assist him. And he has plenty of help: Dennis, his retired, septuagenarian father; Calico, his younger bipolar depressive sister; Suzie, still attractive as ever; and Clyde, the lost bloodhound. Only this unique team can uncover the corruption and sheer stupidity driving the leaders of East West Michigan City to allow the buffalo to roam the shores of Lake Michigan.
