My Poetry

My poem “The New Mortality” has been selected to appear in the Art in the Time of Covid special edition by San Fedele Press, as well as within an ebook edition of The American Writers Review. I’ll post the links here once they are issued.

Proud to be one of the 2020 Brain Mill Press National Poetry Month Contest Editors’ Pick poets. BMP selected one of my Emily Dickinson-inspired poems called “What a time spent trying now”—it uses a line pulled from Dickinson’s poem “A loss of something ever felt I—” (FR1072, J959). Look for it now at

You can find “This is My Memory,” in the 2021 Texas Poetry Calendar by Kallisto Gaia Press. Preorder yours here or grab your copy of this iconic calendar at a local bookstore in Austin.

The Other Dickinson is the name of my current 
book draft of historical fiction.
