My first love is poetry, but I wear lots of hats. I also write children's books,I am Director of after school and summer arts programming at two elementary schools, and I teach writing at the Arvada Center for Arts and Humanities. I'm married to a gifted artist, Scott H.Johnson, and I have an amazing 10-year old daughter. My children's book, Best Friend on Wheels was published by Albert Whitman & Company in 2008. Other work has been included in The Cortland Review, Margie Review: The American Journal of Poetry, The Adirondack Review and the Playwright's Showcase of the Western Region.
