In the midst of deadlines, encircled by glory, torn by the fragmenting anxiety, in the dark, I string words together to make them sing.

My poems have appeared or are forthcoming in the following publications:

The Boston Literary Magazine
Time of Singing
Assisi: A Journal of Arts and Letters
The Montucky Review
Adroit Journal
The Mayo Review
Quantum Poetry Magazine
Emerge Literary Journal
Ruminate Magazine
Grey Sparrow Press
Dappled Things
The Corral

I have won several prizes in contests sponsored by the Utmost Christian Writers Foundation, and contests sponsored by the HSLDA. I was awarded an honorable mention in the 2012 Dorothy Sargent Poetry Prizes Contest.

My first full-length collection of poetry, Having Decided To Stay, has been released with Ethandune Publishing and is available now.
