Cool News!

I won the 2015 PnPAuthors Contest for poetry! My winning poem, “Lovers Like Us”, ended up in an anthology with the other participants, but I got the first page. How awesome is that? 😉

Poets & Writers in Action is comprised of both poetry and short stories. A few other writers that made it into the anthology were Deepak Menon, Robin White, Terry Gilbert, Raven Wilkie, Vinita Singh, and several more.

Here is the book, released just yesterday, with my poem! If you check out the ‘preview’ option on the site, you can read the poem if you scroll through the first few pages! 🙂
