Author's Bio

My work as a Geraldine Dodge Poet in the Schools and as co-founder of the Society for Veterinary Medicine and Literature reflects my strong interest in bringing literature into diverse environments and disciplines.
My poetry collection The Scheme of Things was published September 2015 by David Robert Books. I co-edited the anthology, Animal Companions, Animal Doctors, Animal People: Poems, essays and stories on our essential connections (Ontario Veterinary College, UofGuelph 2012).
