Recent news: five of my poems have been nominated for the 2018 Rhysling Award: "Daunted," first published in Dreams & Nightmares, "Advice to a Six-Year-Old," first published in Star*Line, "The Secret Life of a Toaster," first published in Polu Texni, "Alternate Genders," first published in Mithila Review, and "Lotus Moon," first published in Mythic Delirium.

I am a fantasy and science fiction author who has also committed poetry, including The Sign of the Dragon, an epic fantasy presented in poems. The Sign of the Dragon tells the story of King Xau, chosen by a dragon to be ruler, and what it costs him. The first part of Xau's story may be read in Crowned.
