Word tangler, writer wrangler. I've published many poems in magazines and anthologies, several articles and reviews, a few stories, four collections of poetry, and a CD of me reading my work.

I am a voracious reader.

This site is always a work in progress.



New poem out (linked on the left)


In the larger world 2022 has already brought more than a year's worth of bad, sad news. In the small my-life world a poem or two is/are getting published. I discovered the novella I was writing is actually a novel, meaning it's not finished yet, meaning I'm not going to get the three novellas written by June that I had been planning once upon an optimistic time.

Note that I got utterly stalled out on sending out my 2001 end-of-year missive when I got a flu. I still plan to send them and have bonus poems for late recipients.

My most recent book-length publication is still The Walk She Takes.
