Reading at the Wellness House in Annapolis

What a wonderful time I had reading to the kids at the Wellness House on Saturday.  We had a great time talking about fire safety which ended with the Anne Arundel Fire Department showing up in their hook and ladder truck.  Then, just at the end of their talk, they got a call and were gone in an instant with lights flashing and sirens screaming.  How exciting for everyone.  As they left we all shouted, "Be safe!"

Announcing My New Website!

I'm launching a new website for my Little Leona series.  I'm hoping to publish my second Little Leona book in the next six months.  The previous website, , is still up and it will be my author website for other poems and essays.  You can get to the new website with this link,  Please let me know if any part of the website is problematic.  I've checked it and double checked it, but something always slips through the cracks.  On the contact page you can write your comments.  You can also subscribe here by giving me your email address.  I will send news right to your email of any publicity, readings or events I'm attending.  For now, please remember that I'll be at the Baltimore Book Festival tomorrow, Saturday, September 24 from 11-7.  You can find me near the visitor's center.  I have two other readings coming up, but more about those later...  Hope you enjoy the new website.
