Author's Bio

I enjoy working with adults and young adults and I'm happy to travel for readings, particularly anywhere near the ocean or mountains. I also love presenting workshops for adults and educators. My debut collection of fiction, Growing a New Tail is due out in September of 2015. I have four published collections of poetry.
