Author's Bio

I have two young girls, the perfect spouse, a high school teaching and counseling career I love, a dog that plays fetch, and I get to write. It’s a productive day when I can squeeze in a half hour or so to devote to poetry. For a complete list of publicaitons see:  jamielynnheller.blogspot.com
