Author's Bio

I am a Pushcart Prize and Rhysling Award-nominated poet from the oldest town in Texas, and author of Edge Of The Pond (Popcorn Press, 2012). In the music world, I co-wrote "The Distance Between His Hands" with hit songwriter Don McHan, which was recorded by the Don McHan Band on Power Of Truth Records. I am available to judge poetry contests.
