Two Poems Forthcoming in Painted Bride Quarterly

I found out early this afternoon that I had two poems accepted by Painted Bride Quarterly. I'm very excited about this! The journal has such a cool history.

I can't believe this is only the second week of the semester... I need more caffeine.

Cider Press Review Book Award Finalist

My second full length manuscript The Crimes of Clara Turlington (formerly known as Butter Sad) was a finalist in the recent Cider Press Review Book Award contest.

The manuscript has been a finalist or semi-finalist six times now. Thanks to the presses that have shown interest in it so far!

On Wednesday I am going to see All About Eve at Cinemark/Movies 12 in Ames. Bette Davis on the big screen. I can't wait!
