Another Fire is a handmade letterpress limited edition chapbook of seven poems, published in 1997 by Adastra Press, Easthampton, MA. The book is technically available via Amazon, but if you want a copy, the safest bet is to get it through me. Don't be shy!

My poems and book reviews have appeared in Calyx, Quarterly West, The Silverfish Review, Willow Springs, The Laurel Review, Poet Lore, Georgetown Review, Indiana Review, and other journals.

From 1995-2000, I published and edited the poetry journal Amaranth.

Google my name and you'll get a sampling of my professional writing, which is mostly related to education, as well as children's authors and illustrators.

The Alienist by Caleb Carr
"If I had to sum up The Alienist with one word it would be this: plodding. The description of the book on Goodreads calls it 'fast-paced'. False advertising right there! Fast-paced it most certainly was not. LOL

Rusty I knew you graduated from Emerson, actually. That's how I recognized your name. I was there from 92-95. I don't know if we knew each other or not--I'm awful with faces--but I know I bought a copy of your chapbook sometime in the late 90s because I knew you were an Emerson grad. Go figger. :-) Hope you're well.
