A blog about poetry, teaching, crime fiction (maybe), a certain amount of politics, guitar gear and other stuff.
Many thanks to Michael Feldman
producer Todd Witter, Mike Perry and the band, all the staff and crew of Whad'Ya Know, and the great crowd at Eau claire's State Theater. Tons of fun. Should've brought some books to sell in the lobby.
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.
