I hope to touch others in some positive way through my poetry. My poetry book, Untying the Knot (Aldrich Press, 2014) tells the story of the end of a long marriage and the healing. Poet Tom Lux says it's written with "grace, humor and self-awareness and without a dollop of self-pity," and Poet William Wright says the book "possesses the potential to teach us ways to navigate and ultimately transcend the difficulties of divorce and the feelings of loss and grief such division engenders." To support poets and writers, I host a critique group in Atlanta and a Writers' Night Out in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
