Ever since I was I little girl, I knew that I was destined to be a zoologist, until one day, while dissecting a cat, I realized that my heart wasn’t in it anymore.  After a brief foray into aviation science—where I discovered that no one’s life should depend on my math skills—I decided to take my poetry a bit more seriously.  Since then I’ve earned my MFA and have even published a few poems.

Now I’m faced with the realty of having a job while finding time to write, read, and interact with my husband, family and friends.  My addiction to horror films and comics are not helping matters.  I hope to share some my thoughts and to introduce you to the sometimes bizarre subculture of poets.

    • I don’t know much about poetry even though I once wrote a scientifically informative poem about feces once, but I can tell you that I love comics! Excited to read more of your stuff and hopefully gain some insight in new books or comics worth reading.

  1. “…until one day, while dissecting a cat, I realized that my heart wasn’t in it anymore.” and neither was the cat’s.
    I’m sorry. I know that was horrible but the temptation was simply too great.

    In all seriousness though, I enjoy your writing.

  2. Although as prosaic as they come (retired lawyer, and like that), I’m delighted to discover your blog and look forward to reading many more rewarding posts. By the way, never mind Parnassus. Too pie-in-the-sky. Plenty of eager readers down here.! 🙂

  3. I love your blog! I wanted to let you know that I’ve added your blog to my blogroll and also I mentioned your “Days Without Writing” in my post today! So happy to have found you, great work! Thank you!

  4. I found your lovely blog on a day where rain is falling outside and my German Shepherd is wolfing around the kitchen waiting to steal my Wasa. I too love horror films (the old treasures-definitley not the slasher genre) and read comics when I should be reading newspapers. I found your ‘About’ beautifully written and candid. I look forward to reading onward.
    new blogger who while attending Catholic School (way back when) checked out the same book every library Thursday for six years straight. The book was called Pegasus, The Winged Horse-A Greek Myth Retold by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

  5. Wow, you know so much I still wished you gave aviation a try though. I don’t know I think you are talented. To do so much. I envy the opportunities and your blog is fantastic.
