After 20 or so years of co-writing songs with my poet friend Mike Jurkovic, I started going to poetry readings and decided to try my hand at it. I finally worked up the courage to read my own work. So far, no tomatoes have flown my way. I consider that a promising start. I've been published in the CAPS Anthology (2015) and Waymark-Voices of the Valley Magazine.
