Welcome to my website devoted to the promotion of my writing. I have five works: My first is a memoir, Love Always, Hobby and Jessie(2009). My second is a poetry book, Two Little Girls in a Wading Pool(2012); third is a chapbook, A Cruise in Rare Waters, fourth is Stones for Words (2014). Sometimes the Little Town, was released early 2016. Needville, my poetry about coal mining in SW Virginia came out in 2019. My forthcoming poetry book, Simple River, is out in early Fall 2020.

 "Asymmetry is/a plump wren perched/on a thin branch/contemplating/a ripe strawberry/stilled on a table In its serene/pose does/the wren feel/ripeness or see/the redness or/is the setting/just a pas de deux/for one" (from Stones for Words).
