Forthcoming in 2020: Singing the Land: A Rural Chronology from Shanti Arts Publishing, a collection of my previously published essays reformatted into a month-by-month look at rural living. Many thanks to Shanti Arts!
Thank you, Cimarron Review & Citron Review for honoring me with 2018 Pushcart Prize nominations for "Twenty Rural" and "A Sister Lyric," respectively. I'm also extremely happy to receive 2018 Best of the Net nominations from both Whale Road Review & Portland Review.
Thrilled to be the 2017 Loren Eiseley Creative Nonfiction Award winner (Red Savina Review) & the 2016 Linda Julian Creative Nonfiction winner (Emrys Journal).
