William Shakespeare

Thrilled to be selected as winner of the Shakespeare in the ’Burg one-act playwriting competition. My comedy The Shakespeares was selected from 165 entries from around the world. It will be performed April 5 at the Shakespeare in the ’Burg festival in Middleburg, Va.

Essay in Unruly Catholic Women Writers, Vol. 2. SUNY Press

Brief Grislys. Two pieces of short fiction in the new horror anthology, though I am not a horror writer. I’d say these are more exercises in wiseassery, with a bit of the supernatural sprinkled on top.


It’s my website so I get to say …

Just in time for the Ides of March, Twitter poems about rites of spring

One day, the timing’s right
Romeo and Juliet smile wide awake, ditch the family tomb
Why be star-crossed in a world of infinite endings?

God’s in right
wrangling beach balls and pigeons
watching the exquisite game unfold
ready, but rarely called upon
