I am the author of "Jugglers & Tides" and "Losing the Horizon," published by Hannacroix Creek Books.  A fellowship recipient from the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and a residency from Yaddo are among the honors I've received. Thrice-nominated for a Pushcart Prize, my poems have appeared in Southern Poetry Review, Worcester Review, and other journals.

A Professor of English (retired)at Sussex County Community College, where I teach literature and writing, I live with Crosby, my Norwich terrier, in Hamburg, New Jersey.
