Author's Bio

I hope to touch others in some positive way through my poetry. My two books are No Such Thing as Distance (Terrapin Books, 2018) and Untying the Knot (Aldrich Press, 2014). My work appears in many journals and anthologies. To support poets and writers, I host a critique group in Atlanta and a Writers' Night Out in the Blue Ridge Mountains.
