For most of my writing life I’ve focused on poetry. My poems have appeared in such print and online publications as The Christian Science Monitor, San Pedro River Review, Concho River Review, Texas Poetry Calendar, U.S.1 Worksheets, Flycatcher, Bellowing Ark, The Aurorean, Folio, Melancholy Hyperbole, Your Daily Poem, A Year of Being Here, Naugatuck River Review, and many more. I’ve also had poems in a number of anthologies, like Bearing the Mask: Southwestern Persona Poems (ed. Scott Wiggerman and Cindy Huyser, Dos Gatos Press 2016), Pushing the Envelope: Epistolary Poems (ed. Jonas Zdanys, Lamar University Press 2015) and Grit, Gravity and Grace: New Poems about Medicine and Healthcare (ed. Rhonda L. Soricelli, M.D. and Jack Coulehan, M.D., M.P.H.; College of Physicians of Philadelphia 2015). I’ve been nominated three times for the Pushcart Prize and once for Best of the Net. Below is a sampling of some of my published poems.
