Welcome to my Author’s Website!

Even though the wind is rolling off the canyon/ whipping up little cones of dust/ a take away from Wyoming’s Wild West/ this blast of spring’s last caress is an offering from above/ God’s tender stroke of love that fills/ each moment of my life with breath (©2011)


I hope you’ll pull up a chair and hang out with me for a while. I’ll be filling you in on things like info about my current and upcoming publications, sharing snippets of my writing with you, uploading poems from time to time and generally keeping you informed about my written words. I look forward to your feedback!
