What could be a better way to memorialize the agonies of writing than to laugh? My humorous poem, "Bloody Ink," came out yesterday in the Cairn Press's print anthology, Blood on the Floor: How Writers Survive Rejection. With over thirty fantastic authors having a laugh - and sometimes a cry - over the most brutal part of the writing process, the anthology is a celebration of the perseverance it takes to be a published writer. Available on Amazon and Goodreads.
I am a freelance writer and poet with nearly a hundred short pieces published in magazines and anthologies. When not writing, I wear multiple editing hats for the ezine Bewildering Stories. If the Walking Dead isn't on, I draw pictures and do origami meditation in Connecticut, where I live with my husband and three children. If the Walking Dead is on... shhhh! The Walking Dead is on!
