Please purchase my poetry chapbook!

Hello friends,

My second chapbook, a collaboration of poems by me and paintings by my dear friend and graduate school colleague Susan Solomon, has been made available here through Red Bird Press.

It is entitled Catalpa after the tree and the title poem. For the rest, you’ll just have to see for yourself!

It would mean a lot to us if you would support our project by buying our book and/or sharing this link.

Also, please let me and/or Susan know what you think!

Lots of love,



Another year (almost) gone by

Started out the new year by jumping around, I should have known then that it would be a good year.

Reunited with friends at AWP and did a reading for Susan and my mini-chapbook; even the Grammys were worth watching.

Moved to Madison and rode my bike everywhere and only fell off once. Taught my first college classes. Now getting ready to travel again.

2013 will begin Chicago, London, West Africa. I think it has a lot of potential.
