November 2008
My poem "Wind Chime" appeared in the September issue of Chronogram. My poem "Sober on a Snowy Day" was published in the recent all female issue of wordsdance. sunnyoutside will be releasing my new collection Falling Forward in February! I am planning many readings and have been invited by Doug Holder to be interviewed on his TV show Poet to Poet/Writer to Writer. (See the reading section for more details.) Currently, I am working on a new collection of poems centered around a pool hall that I co-owned with my husband.
Recently I was asked by Amanda Oaks to preview a new chapbook that she is putting out by Heather Bell. I absolutely love Heather's writing and highly recommend the read! I love Amanda's work in the small press.

I read with Nathan Graziano at the Mark Twain House in Hartford Conn. for the last day of The Beat Festival on June 8th. I am working on the last of edits for a new collection. I also started working on some new pieces on pool halls. Basically, life is good and busy and I wish there were 8 more hours in a day. Is that so much to ask?

There is never enough time.
My daughter eats all of my books.
Her eyes may be hazel or maybe brown.
I hope she isn't anything like I was as a teenager.
I respect mothers, far more than ever before!!!
