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. Please contact your favorite bookstore—or me–for details. Literati Bookstore hosted the official virtual launch on October 6, 2020 (Thank you everyone who helped make that a celebration!). Thank you Annie Martin–and everyone at Wayne State University Press–for taking in my poems. 2020 was a wild ride of a year and your confidence in my work helped me keep my seat.
This spectacular cover was designed by Katrina Noble using a painting by Nancy Mitchnick. I discovered Ocean View in 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 graciously gave us permission to use one of my favorites.
