I am delighted to announce that my full-length collection of poetry, Inheritance Of Aging Self, will be published next fall by Finishing Line Press. This book has been a few years in the making (I had to grow old-ish to write it!) and sooner or later I’ll probably write a longer description blurb, but for now I’ll just say that the title is a pretty big clue about the subjects that I tackle in these poems.
As we get closer to publication, I’ll be sharing a lot more about the book, and over the next few months will be tweaking this website and endeavoring to be a bit more diligent about social media, so stay tuned. And I should also mention that the book will be available for pre-ordering beginning this summer (a lot more about that later).
If you would like me to share a few of these poems at a reading, please get in contact, I’d love to discuss that with you!
One last note–as some of you know, I have also been actively creating art again after a long hiatus, working now in improv quilting and I am going to be posting some pictures of my quilts and more about my work here on this blog starting very soon. For now, I’ll leave you with a detail picture from a quilt that I titled, You Are Here, Or Maybe There. No guarantees of how long it will stay there, but as I write this, a larger detail of this quilt is also in the banner on my Facebook page. More coming soon, I’m still working on the photos.
