A blog about poetry, teaching, crime fiction (maybe), a certain amount of politics, guitar gear and other stuff.
Have I mentioned that i'll be very, very glad when this tenure-review business is over (for now) and the revisions are done and sent in? I don't mean to complain, but I kind of miss my wife and kids. And my guitars. And poker. And doing stuff that isn't work.
I'm the author of the Frank Coffin mystery series, HIGH SEASON (2007), MATING SEASON (2009) and FIRE SEASON (2012) from St. Martin's/Minotaur. I've also published three books of poems VANITAS MOTEL (1998), THE PLEASURE PRINCIPLE (2001), and The MANSION OF HAPPINESS (2016), all from Oberlin College Press. I'm currently at work on a comedic novel and a new book of poems. When I'm not writing I'm a college professor, a sort of okay guitar player, a guitar gear junkie, and a husband and father in progress.
