Wow, it's been busy around here. I'm so glad school is almost done for the year. I'm looking forward to a relaxed summer and a chance for the girls to just hang out and play all day.

I'm still writing poems, but boy has this round of 30/30 been tough. Only a few more days to go!

You may have forgotten, but I also write flash fiction. My latest publications:

Wigleaf recently included my flash kawaii, a short meditation on Hello Kitty. They also invited me to send in a Dear Wigleaf postcard (look below the story for the link).

The latest issue of Press 1 just went live, with my take on the Pinocchio tale, If Truth Be Told.
