My poetry chapbook is now available from Porkbelly Press! Big thanks to Nicci Mechler and Ashley Blake for helping to make this a reality.

Today my poem, “Sucker-Punched” is up at Moonsick Magazine. Thank you Gwen Werner. This is a very important poem for me, one my most vulnerable. So proud to see it published. The picture above is me as my character at the haunted house, pre-punch.
Big thank you to Bianca Spriggs and the editors at Apex Magazine for publishing my poem, “How to Know If Your House is Haunted and What to Do”. This poem has seen a lot of rejection, so I’m especially thrilled it has found such a wonderful home.
My poem, “Linda Blair Dreams of Bees or The Devil Girl Among the Daffodils” is up at Lunch today! And what’s even better is I’m in the same issue (or on the same menu) as my former professor and dear friend, John A. McDermott and his poem, “Report of the Death of an American Citizen”.
Thank you to D. Gilson for a wonderful issue!
I’m all abuzz.
I am so honored this year to have two poems nominated for the Pushcart Prize!
“When a Father is Dying” – Rust + Moth
“Engine Girl” – Amethyst Arsenic and ELJ Editions
A big thank you to these journals and their editors who have not only given my poetry a home, but continue to support and share my work with others.
I also had a birthday! Thus, Marcel the Shell.
Thrilled to have two of my poems published in the Fall 2016 Issue of Glint!
