What Do I Write?

I write poetry, fiction, nonfiction, puzzles, and crafts for children's magazines.

My favorite thing to write is poetry, and I love it all--rhyming, free verse, acrostics, haiku...  Regardless of form, I love the challenge of expressing an idea in a unique way, and hopefully eliciting an emotional response from my readers.  If my words make you laugh, cry, question, or ponder, then I feel I've been successful.

My published works are listed below, as well as those that have been accepted, but are not yet published.  Hopefully, I'll be adding more to this list soon!
