I live in rural Pennsylvania, but cross the border every day to teach at Jamestown Community College in Jamestown, New York. My work can be seen in 5AM, the Barn Owl Review, Blast Furnace, Cave Wall, Copper Nickel, Fourth River, Flyway, Fourth River and River Styx. My first chapbook, Stealing Dust, was published by Finishing Line Press. My second chapbook, Wearing Heels in the Rust Belt, won Main Street Rag's 2011 chapbook contest and was published in 2012.

As for my personal library -- my collection is huge! At one point, I had only posted my poetry books on GoodReads. But, I have been a member of GoodReads for many years now, so now I think it is a good time to move on to catalog all of my books!

Picture This happens to me every summer. I do great with my writing and submission goals during the end of May and June and then, when July hits, I seem to bury myself in mundane tasks -- like finishing the big stack of to-read books I have piled in our spare bedroom. And just in case I run out of books, I can walk three blocks to the local public library to restock my reading needs. No problem.
