My husband and I live on a ranch in the bootheel of New Mexico eighty miles from a grocery store and a hundred miles from a coffee shop. I talk to my pets, my closet is full of city clothes unfit for ranch life, and I dance to old-school funk while cleaning the house. Drop in when you’re passing through. I’ll keep the light on!

I teach creative writing and literature for the University of Arizona and Cochise College, chair the Cochise Creative Writing Celebration, and edit the Mirage, Literary and Arts Magazine. I hold an MFA in Creative Writing and a Masters in Bilingual Education.
