Author's Bio

After 25 years as a newspaper editor I returned to poetry, something I wanted to write as a young adult. But I found news work and parenting took up more time than there was for working at writing poems. When my daughter went off to college, I decided I knew what I wanted to do when I would finally grow up: learn how to write good poems.
