Very happy to announce that my poem, "A Whisper in Dime Box", won first place in contest #8 of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies annual competition. See https://nfsps.com/2019Winners.pdf.

Also happy to announce that my book, "The Drawn Cat's Dream", which won the Catherine Case Lubbe Manuscript Prize, will be published and available through Amazon.com next week (11 July 2019).

I owe a great deal of my success to my colleague poets in the AbsoluteWrite poetry critique forums.
