I began my creative writing career after retiring from industry. I would love to talk to readers about my writing and the memoir, as well as my short stories and poetry. My latest poetry book, Sometimes the Little Town, is based on the photography of Hobby Robinson. I have 3 other published poetry books and a memoir. I live in central Virginia and enjoy all the wonders that abound in the local area. Much of my writing focuses on these experiences as well as reflecting on how I am evolving as a poet and writer. In Fall 2014, one of my poems about my Jewish heritage appeared in Poetica Magazine. Looking for places to buy my books? Check out: Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Solace (Elkton, VA), Noon Whistle Pottery(Stanardsville, VA) and Cedar Creek Publishing. I have taught in the UVA/OLLI program, and write a column on poetry for Southern Writers Magazine. My book, Needville, out in Fall 2019, tells about coal mining and its effects on the people and landscape.
