Introduction I am the author of three books of poetry. My most recent book, The Alchemy of My Mortal Form, won the 2014 Louise Bogan Award from Trio House Press. My other books include The Girlhood Book of Prairie Myths (Jacar Press) and Blood Almanac (Anhinga Press). I received my MFA from the University of Arkansas Fayetteville and my BA in English from the College of St. Benedict. In Fall of 2015, I will be joining the faculty of the Arkansas Writers MFA at the University of Central Arkansas. For the past decade, I taught at Pulaski Technical College, where I directed the Big Rock Reading Series. I also co-edit Heron Tree, a journal of online poetry, bound annually.
