Welcome, everyone! This page has a few examples of my writing. My first book, entitled Cleave, was released in May 2018 from Spartan Press, and my second book of poetry was just released in April of 2019. Poetry releases will NOT be annual events, but I am very excited about the new book, Scheherazade Plays The Chestnut Tree Cafe. I'll let you contemplate the title, and I'm happy to discuss, but for now let's just say it's all about stories and making sense of the world. The poems travel to Vietnam, Iceland, Alaska, Colorado, inscapes, and, of course, the rural roads of Northeast Kansas.
How to get a book (available for $15 for Scheherazade, $12 for Cleave, plus shipping, if mailed): 1) Attend a reading. See "Events" for upcoming appearances. I'd love to see you! 2) Shoot me an e-mail if you'd like a copy mailed or delivered to you and we will make that happen: firstname.lastname@example.org. 3) Go to indiebound.org and order from a local independent bookstore. 4) Books are available on-line from Barnes and Noble and Amazon. *My preferred method is to get you an autographed copy and connect with you personally (and not give the on-line sites 50%!).
