Coming Soon


When I say I’m doing it, I’m usually all in and don’t stop until I get it done.

Writing poetry is the easy part. The self pub and promo is the hard part.

So let’s jump in.

Introducing my next poetry book.

Cultivating Ink

These were taken from my NaPoWriMo writings over the last few years. Mark the date. 9/4/2017

Tell your friends. Tell your parents. Tell your boss and coworkers.


Help me get my words out there for all to enjoy and read.

Thank you



I think it’s time

Time for another collection of poetry to be published.

Hmmm? Now to work on a manuscript, title and cover.

Off to work. And if you haven’t picked up copies of my other collections. They are still available. I’m thankful for the support and the sales that are still coming after 2-3 years. So grateful.

Check out my tab above, titled Books for more information on my collections.


always…. all ways♥


Day 01 – NaPoWriMo 2017

April is upon us. I’ll be sometimes following the prompts HERE or from a poetic FB group I belong to. Today’s prompt is from the former and it to write a Kay-Ryan-esque poem: short, tight lines, rhymes interwoven throughout.


Day 01

snatched and
edges laid.
hips full.
watch the curves
they are quite
and viewed
upon with lust.
reverences paid
must be submitted
with actions
pure, golden
pillars of trust.
lest you ever
swim within the
waters of brilliance
and stardust.
for this Goddess
will accept nothing less.
