Upcoming Events

As promised, there are a few author events coming up in September & October! The first is a poetry reading at an upcoming BONK! virtual event.

This month’s BONK! event will be held on Saturday, September 24th from 6 pm to 7:30 pm on Zoom webinar and streamed on Facebook Live at the BONK! Facebook page. Curated and hosted by Alex Reilly, BONK! will feature poets, writers, and musicians both locally and from across the country sharing pieces about social justice and change. A link to the Zoom event, Facebook feed and more information about this event can be found at https://www.bonkseries.org/

Then, in October, I will be participating in the Local Author Day with Blue House Books (Oct. 1) and Authotober at Studio Moonfall (Oct. 6)

Kenosha Book Festival

This will be my FIRST EVER official author event! I’m so excited to meet & greet people. Even if you’re not into poetry, I can tell you all about my upcoming novel and I will have FREE STICKERS!

Echoing Back at You: A Decade of Social Media Poetry is now available in ebook and paperback from Kindle Direct Publishing! It will soon be available through Ingramspark as well.

The next author event will be the Kenosha Book Festival at Studio Moonfall (see events). I am also working to organize a few events for October and I might make a few open mic appearances in September – stay tuned for details!
