Another Great Gaithersburg Book Festival!

Kateema Lee, Erica Wright, V.P. Loggins, and Kurt Olsson.

I had so much fun introducing the poetry panel at the Gaithersburg Book Festival featuring Kateema Lee, Erica Wright, Kurt Olsson, and V.P. Loggins and being there with one of the teens from the Gaithersburg Teen Writing Club while she introduced YA authors Jessica Spotswood and Winifred Conkling!  Despite the rain there was a great crowd and lots of wonderful authors.  If you missed it this year, it will be on May 18th next year, save the date!

2 New Poems: Patriotic Amnesia and Dying In The Land Of The Free

I’m very pleased to have two new poems published in Tuck Magazine.  Both poems, Patriotic Amnesia, and Dying In The Land Of The Free, address the deeply flawed narrative of American patriotism and its celebration of militarism.
