I am both a poet and a non-fiction article writer.
I also write book reviews, which are discussed on a separate page–see Menu.
I’ve published over 60 poems in literary journals in the U.S., U. K., and Canada. I’ve been published recently in Rogue Agent, Thirteen Myna Birds, Tinderbox Journal, The American Journal of Poetry, Writing In A Woman’s Voice, Yes Poetry, The Open Mouse, Pittsburgh Poetry Houses, and other journals.
My poem “Smells Like Teen Spirit” was recently published by the literary magazine Rogue Agent. Here is a link to that poem:
My poem “After My Baby Brother Kills Himself, I Try on Flowered Muumuus” was nominated for a Pushcart Prize by Tinderbox Journal (2016). See http://www.tinderboxpoetry.com/previous-volume?volume=3&issue=5
