Writer. Editor. Performance Poet. Creative Writing Workshop Facilitator. I like to fill the fire with irons and then complain about being too busy. I currently serve as editor for World Outreach International and MindLife Success. My poetry, fiction, and nonfiction have appeared in hundreds of publications, including The Cafe Review, Ledge Magazine, Margie, Pearl, Spoon River Poetry Review, and Stolen Island Review. Three of my poems have been featured on The Writer’s Almanac with Garrison Keillor and I received an Emerging Artist Award from St. Botolph Club Foundation in 2013.
