Author's Bio

I consider myself a "semi-formalist," writing in forms but not exclusively. I live in the Bronx in New York. I have worked as the Grants and Gifts Manager for Habitat for Humanity-New York City and taught a poetry workshop at Caring Community. I am retired and do editorial freelance work. I continue to have poems published in many literary magazines and several anthologies, and have a collection of work on the online formal poetry site at www.hypertexts.com. My chapbook What Moves the Sun is forthcoming from White Violet Press.
