Encantado, my collaborative chapbook with artist Matt Kish will be released at AWP 2015 from Redbird Chapbooks. The poems are a narrative loosely based on some of the myths involving the mystical properties of Amazon river dolphins.
Samples of some interior art below - stay tuned for updates. Thanks and gratitude to Matt for being so generous and gracious with his incredible talent.
Exciting news! My second manuscript (tentatively titled Washed with Hymns and Singing)
has been accepted for publication by Sundress Publications! Stay tuned for more details.
