Thanks for visiting!
Recent news: A poem of mine (inspired by my Spring 2014 trip to Paris!) will be part of a "poem a day" feature up on King County's Poetry on Buses website over the next year. The series starts online on November 10th, and also on the 10th there will be a launch party featuring local poets and live music (free and open to the public) at the Moore Theatre. Sounds like fun!
My first full-length book of poems, Search for a Velvet-Lined Cape, was released in 2013. You can purchase a copy at Open Books, Elliott Bay Book Co., Third Place Books (both the Ravenna and Lake Forest Park stores), at readings, from the publisher Mayapple Press, or on Amazon.com.

(Recorded in 2005 at On the House in Seattle's Capitol Hill neighborhood as part of the "Reel to Reel" poetry series. Poems start about halfway through the segment, after Garrison Keillor.)
