Author's Bio

My fourth book, Wanton Disarray from Hungry Buzzard Press will appear in Spring of 2019. Red Flag Press just released my chapbook, First Night and a second chapbook, Doors has been accepted by Dancing Girl Press. Along with my other books, Lost Journal of my Second Trip to Purgatory, (Old Seventy Creek Press) Disenchanted and Disgruntled and Irony and Irreverence, from Lamar University Literary Press, Wanton Disarray will be available on Amazon and B&N.
Besides the above publishing credits, I am the former editor for the online journal, Red River Review. I hold a BS in Political Science-Pre Law from Texas Wesleyan University and a Certificate in Paralegal Studies from Tarrant County College; who recently named me a Distinguished Alumni.
