My poems have appeared in Bay Area Generations, Entropy, The East Bay Review, and Rivet Journal (Red Bridge Press). My poetry chapbooks Cherrystem (Finishing Line Press) and don draper checks the window (Dancing Girl Press) were both published in 2017. My nonfiction essay "The Rainbow Laundry Project"appeared in Novemebr 2016 at The Manifest Station.
don draper checks the window came out in September of 2017 from dancing girl press & studio. I was watching Mad Men. It started with "Don Draper in the Fetal Position," which is about having compassion for yourself because I felt protective of Don Draper but not of me. Then I imagined Don interacting with other characters like Jane Eyre, so I could get the good in him to show. The book is about empathy if it's about something. Handmade by Kristy Bowen with cover art by me, don draper checks the window has poems about Don & Jane Eyre's time-travel interaction, Beauty and the Beast, gaslighting, Cocacola, & more.

"I Want to Drink Like Don Draper" in The East Bay Review "I want to drink like Don Draper" was nominated by The East Bay Review for a Pushcart Prize in December 2016.
