I have recently published one poem each in Ploughshares and The New York Quarterly and two each in The Sun and The Hudson Review (only one of which is available online). One of my prose poems appeared in the international journal Expanded Field. I was one of nine finalists (out of 1,800 entries) for the Jack Grapes Poetry Prize sponsored by Cultural Daily, I made the Top Ten for the Frontier New Voices contest, and have been nominated for a Pushcart Prize the last three years running. And in a big surprise, my short story "For Betsy's Britches" made it to the top 100 in LeVar Burton's speculative fiction contest.
