Poetry was my first and is my continuing love.

I’ve published three poetry collections (click the titles to learn more):

Versed in Nature: Hiking Northwest Illinois and East Iowa State Parks

My poems have also appeared occasionally on the web (click the title to see):

My poem, “Out of the Blue,” won first place in Bettendorf Public Library’s 2011-2012 Love Poem Contest.
