Publications & Awards

Thank you to the editors of the Undertow Tanka Review! A tanka by me is coming out soon!

Holy Leaves! My poem “Children at Play in Beaumont Park, 1934” will be part of The Poetry Leaves Project Exhibition May 2-31, 2017 and will also be published in the Poetry Leaves bound volume. If you happen to be in Michigan nearby Waterford Township this May, check it out—and take some photos for me. And, yes, Poetry can be Art!

Excited and honored! Just learned that my “Two Icelandic Tales” are forthcoming in the upcoming anthology series of Lilac City Fairy Tales: Weird Sisters, published by Scablands Books. Makes me want to take a trip to Iceland!
