My focus is on writing poetry and fiction, and teaching workshops and short courses in literature and poetry and memoir writing, especially to retirees.
I was awarded Honorable Mentions in the Joe Gouveia Outermost Poetry Contest for my poems "Rene and Marcella," (2017) and "Biography" (2018); the Glimmer Train 2014 short fiction contest for my short story, “Tony Bennett, Aldous Huxley, and Eddie;” the Spring 2015 Allen Ginsberg Poetry Awards for my poem, “Pâtissière."
My essay, “I Got the Shotgun, You Got the Briefcase” Judging, Layering and Ethics,” appears in the critical anthology, The Wire: Urban Decay and American Television (ed. Potter and Marshall, Continuum Press, 2009)
