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, Scheherazade Plays The Chestnut Tree Cafe, was released in April of 2019. If you haven't tried much poetry, my stuff is pretty accessible. I often tell stories, and my 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 support local independent bookstores. 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%!).
