I enjoy Zydeco and classic country such as Blue by LeAnn Rimes or I Fall to Pieces by Patsy Cline. I am also a Star Trek and Doctor Who fan.
I published my first poetry manuscript, Terminal Switching, in 2007. The novelist and poet Marge Piercy edited that manuscript. My list of published poems and public readings is extensive.
I currently teach basic writing, creative writing, and literature courses at Louisiana State University. Before working in academia, I was a journalist, and before that, an inner-city missionary in Birmingham, Alabama.
