I have also assembled several book-length manuscripts. Unfortunately, my efforts to get a book published have not met with success... Until recently.
My most recent manuscript has been accepted and will be published by the University of Arkansas Press in the Spring of 2016. I want to thank the staff at the Press and Billy Collins — the series editor who selected the book — for their faith and interest in my manuscript.
In the meantime, I've decided to make some of my earlier work available online:
- A collaboration with friend and fellow poet, Bill Evans: Rilke's Elegies (1985)
- A short chapbook of poems: Catalog (2007)
There is no definition that can encompass all that poetry is or can be. But if my work can instill in you, as reader, even a fraction of what poetry has meant to me over the years, I will feel that I have succeeded.
