I am thrilled to be able to tell you that my first full-length collection of poems A Fine Canopy has been released to the world and you can have your very own copy now. Please contact your favorite bookstore—or me–for details. Author events are in the works for November, December, and next spring. Please watch this space–and the Wayne State University Press website–for updates. Literati Bookstore hosted the official virtual launch on October 6 (Thank you everyone who helped make that a celebration!). You can find new interviews with me, reviews of my work, poetry readings, and other media coverage, by clicking here. Thank you Annie Martin–and everyone at Wayne State University Press–for taking in my poems. It has been a wild ride of a year thus far and your confidence in my work helps me keep my seat.
This spectacular cover was designed by Katrina Noble using a painting by Nancy Mitchnick. I discovered Ocean View in a a book of Nancy’s work published by MOCAD. I fell in love with the paintings she has made since moving back to Detroit after being away for many many years, and she has graciously given us permission to use one of my favorites.
