Author's Bio

I was born in Krum, Texas. I’m the author of three books of poetry: The Glass Children (The University of Georgia Press), Success Stories (Limestone Books), and Song of the Middle Manager (Grayson Books). I’m also the author of Catholic by Choice (Loyola Press). My poems and essays have been published in the New Yorker, Poetry, Hudson Review, Sun Magazine, Denver Quarterly, Image Journal and several antholigies. I’m president of a small but sturdy business writing agency in Austin, Texas, where I live with my wife. I have never taken a writing workshop, though I've taught quite a few.
