“Pumpkin Ash and Cypress Knees” is a Rhysling Award nominee

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Poetry Association (SFPA) has posted the longlist of Rhysling Award nominees, and my poem “Pumpkin Ash and Cypress Knees” made the list!  This poem was published in Boudin by The McNeese Review in their special Halloween issue, It Came from the Swamp.  To whoever out there nominated my poem, I really appreciate the honor! 

I’ve also sold a story to LatineLit, due out later this year, and I’ve been invited to speak at an upcoming chapter meeting of the Willamette Writers.  More info. to come.
