A word about my current and/or recent
writing projects...

I'm excited to share my first poetry book: a series of poems inspired by the Gothic Romantic mood. 

Think Mary Shelley meets Wes Craven or Jane Eyre meets Jason Vorhees. The book represents a literary and cinematic exploration of the beauty within the dark.  Blending tones and images, the collection is a study of primal fear and what attracts us to the morally ambiguous.

My Gothic Romance was published by Finishing Line Press in April 2019.

As a semi-minimalist, I've come to value and appreciate minimalism in my own writing.  To explore this aesthetic impulse in the context of social media, I've been posting short poems and lines on my Instagram page.  Each of these short poetry posts is preceded by an image that relates to it in theme.  The subjects and tones are varied, but many pieces express a romantic perspective of reality.

 

3) New Poetry Series

I'm currently at work on a new series of poems inspired by the mystery genre.  Stay tuned for details.
