Publications as a Junior at University of South Florida

American Literature from 1865 to 1912, taught by Valerie Lipscomb, Ph. D., challenges this poet.  Soon, I receive my grade on a Booker T. Washington Leadership Project.  I'm at work on a critical essay examining sexuality in an Edith Wharton short story.  American Literature, from Beginnings to 1860, I've tapped to take in Spring 2012.  This course, deeply immersed in the writings of our Founding Fathers, engages the brightest USF students.  The alternative student balance act is like no other.

"Identity Replacement," a new poem, appears in the February 2012 Issue of Red River Review (   "Before I Ask to Take Her", "Sailboats," and other poems of mine also are available at Red River Review.

"Sleep Aide," microfiction, can be perused at 50 to 1,

"Trespass to Eternity," and "Until Dawn Sinks," poems, continue my work as Contributing Poet on,  Thanks to my poetry editor at Mad Swirl, mh, for always extending a helpful hand.
