NEW! My poem "When You Try to Make Something Sad Look Pretty" is included in Of Rust and Glass's new SCARS issue!

"You are the pallbearer wearing high heels

even though you never cared very much
for high heels. They are now sewn on
to the bottom of your feet.
Unable to be removed

from the unwanted, you wobble haphazardly"

NEW! My Eyes Are Vexed Meteoroids inside Resurrection Mag this week

My tinnitus turns into a scream
and I hold my hands over my ears
so the poisonous flowers don’t force their way out.

NEW! "Writing the Self-Elegy, The Past Is Not Disappearing Ink" will be coming to life in May

I'm in the process of and really enjoying reading this book. The book doesn't technically exist in print until May, but since I have a couple poems in it, I received an online proof a while back, to double check my poems and I've been reading the other poems in there too and really loving a lot of them.


It's called "Writing the Self-Elegy, The Past Is Not Disappearing Ink", edited by Kara Dorris, includes work by 28 poets, and the poets offer poetry, an "essay" (interpreted various different ways), and a writing prompt.

I'm very excited to be included in this book, even more excited about reading all the other contributions, and will be even more excited when the book comes to life in print in May.

You can find out more about it here and even buy one if you want.

My poetry chapbook manuscript, "red flames burning out" has been accepted by Grey Book Press!

I am delighted to announce that my poetry chapbook manuscript, "red flames burning out" was selected as one of three chapbooks to be published by Grey Book Press this year!

And congratulations to the other two writers whose chapbooks were also selected, Jessica Purdy and Karen Kilcup!

"First up, this Spring, will be GBP veteran and horror-poetry-queen Juliet Cook, followed by Jessica Purdy and Karen Kilcup. We’ll have more details on release dates next month."

You can read more from Grey Book Press editor Scott Sweeney on the Grey Book Press site here - http://www.greybookpress.com/2023/01/21/january-2023-update-selections-edition/

(I'm a Grey Book Press veteran because they published my poetry chapbook "Poisonous Beautyskull Lollipop" 10 years ago, which does not feel like 10 years ago, but was. I'm very excited to have another chapbook being published by them this year!)
