Latest Release

My new book, Drawing Words is available through Finishing Line Press
DRAWING WORDS is a poetic journey through the childhood of two sisters who grew up amid severe domestic violence and alcoholism, and the strong lifelong bond they forged.

All Three Volumes
Now Available!

My new books, ISOLATION JOURNAL-VOLUMES ONE, TWO and THREE, are available through BookBaby.com, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and other booksellers. In an attempt to stay connected, both to the outside world after months in isolation with my dog Blanca—and to my sense of humor during these crazy & scary times— I began this collection of poetry, musings, political commentary & quirky wordplay, and I’m very happy to share it with you.
