'What, there's MORE??'
                                                                   (Poetry & Kid Lit)

    Why yes, much more! I'm also a published children's writer.  

    Over the years, I've had numerous adult poems published in
    various independent collections including Metamorphosis
    Publishing’s Visions, the Tall Grass Writers Guild’s Seasons of
    Change, The Licking River Review, Assisi: Online Journal of Arts
    & Letters, and The 5-2 Crime Poetry Weekly, among others.   

    One of my poems, "Apple Stealing," was nominated by the
    Young Adult Review Network (YARN) for a prestigious Pushcart
    Prize in 2012.

         I am a member of the Society of Children’s Book Writers and        
      Illustrators (
SCBWI), and you can read more of my poetry at
      
Radio, Rhythm, and Rhyme, and in various children's        
      anthologies including Lee Bennett Hopkins’ "Lullaby and Kisses
      Sweet" (Abrams Appleseed, 2015); J. Patrick Lewis’ "The
      National Geographic Book of Nature Poetry" (National
      Geographic Children's Books, 2015); and Kenn Nesbitt's "One
      Minute Till Bedtime" (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers,
      2016), as well as several others.  

      My debut picture book, "Flashlight Night" (Boyd's Mills Press),
      is scheduled for a Fall 2017 release.
