Coming Soon...

Aloha from Puna, Hawaii (post Kilauea eruption, post Hurricane Lane)! I'm happy to announce several projects in the works! First up, my poem "Punatic" is now available via Writing Knights Press' litmag The Wayward Sword: Grand Showcase 2018!

My fourth poetry collection PUNATIC: Poems from Puna, Hawaii  is coming soon from Writing Knights! 100% of my author proceeds will be donated to Puna relief efforts!

Just in! I will be guesting on this fall! Im hoping to contribute to meaningful dialogue on LGBT Amish issues!

I have called the Big Island of Hawaii home for nearly a year and a half now and love it here. Puna is truly a spiritual mecca! I love studying Hawaiian literature, history, literature and poetry!
