I'm delighted you visited! I am sharing new content over the coming weeks thanks to suggestions from visitors. This website is more than a portfolio of my art and writing - it's our website. I write blogs to inspire your Creative Side. There's a kids' page to discover the fun to be had at home - an extension of my book Making Monster Soup. With a little imagination, we can make chores turn into as much fun as a scavenger hunt. I will be posting videos of me reading my poems (once I get my hair under some control) as well as weekly writing prompts for you.

I welcome your suggestions on how to make this website more engaging. Off screen, I'm editing and organizing my poetry into a book to publish this year. I'm open to collaborations and commissions involving art, editing and writing non-fiction, fiction, and poetry.

Thanks for your support of my creative endeavors in writing, art, and community service. I'm glad to say that all proceeds Mascot: Memoirs from  Zinc Mining Town have been donated to the Friends of the Knox County Public Library Program.

A great way to support literacy.
