Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Robert Service, John McCrae, and T.E. Lawrence exerted their influence and inspiration on my early work. My favorite current authors include Nikky Finney, Rita Dove and Michael McClure.
I am querying a mainstream fiction novel A COWBOY ON THE LOOSE IN LONDON, and 2 collections of poetry, FALLINGS FROM HEAVEN, and A COWBOY WHO'S IN LOVE, which still allows me regular forays into poetic thought. I am editing four additional collections of poetry and recently wrote a draft of a children's book. I perform at poetry readings locally.
I am a poet, masquerading as a novelist. It seems to be working...
The group has always exceeded my expectations.
