I participated in an interview  with Poet Bekah Steimel, read here:

How this interview happened:

Both Bekah and I have poems in recent issue Third Wednesday, and we are also a part of the 2018 Poet Bloggers Revival Tour.  Bekah's poem in Third Wednesday is so poignant.  I have read and reread it several times.  In fact, the recent of Third Wednesday is so moving, especially  now-- so much to admire.  I am grateful for the online and print versions.

As you know, my Spring semester started at St. John Fisher College and The College at Brockport.  I got the flu/cold/nasty cough, despite getting the flu shot. Somehow, with the grace of technology, I was able to keep my Tuesday class (two weeks ago) on track virtually.  So not a beat was skipped.

My acceptances for January 2018 (poems, fictions, CNF, reviews) reached 25. So grateful to all of the editors who have given my work ascent. I am equally grateful to the poets and writers who are communicating with me.  Thank you for your conversations.

Stay warm!
