Author's Bio

After 18 years at the helm of the creative writing program at The University of Findlay, which included a prison writing program and courses on E-Poetry, I returned to my home after 40 years away, where I continue to write and publish poetry and prose. Additionally, I have edited an anthology on Russell Atkins, and I curate a Cuyahoga County Public Library websites that features 30 poets each year, "Read + Write: 30 Days of Poetry."
