Brickhouse Books hosts a Wicked Woman poetry prize and this year the judge Rose Solari judged my manuscript Blue Like Apples a close second to the winner. I thank Rose and the Brickhouse editors for all the kudos and good advice as that book keeps evolving. 

Rathalla Review publishes “Cadaver”

This is one of the best news-rendered-into-poetry sites. They do a superb job with pairing visuals with text, and linking to relevant news stories. An educational and inspirational site that I’m proud to have been published on. See my poem here 67th parallel North.

Route 20 Anthology

wpf8bd5f61 05 06

Road trips were a prime element of my childhood featuring summer treks between Tennessee, New York, Wisconsin and Florida. I haven’t written much about them, but when I saw the call for this anthology I gave it a shot and the poem found a home. The anthology is out now from Foothills Press. Get your copy here! When my copy comes I’ll post the poem.
