All poets, all writers are political. They either maintain the status quo, or they say, ’Something’s wrong, let’s change it for the better.’ – Sonia Sanchez
Poetry is an act of peace. – Pablo NerudaSteemit
Debut Poetry Book
I recently signed an agreement with Ingrid Wilson of Experiments in Fiction to publish a debut poetry book. I am super excited! I am currently writing and editing poems in preparation for my book. It will be out sometime in late 2022.

Books and Journals
Utmost Feelings: Astha’s Anthology
I was fortunate to have participated in this lovely Anthology, compiled by our recently passed and beloved Astha.
It was such a beautiful experience, and I am thankful to every one of the writers, and particularly grateful to Navin and Cindy. Without them, I would not have been a part of this beautiful Anthology.
Here is a document with details on how to order. Thank you.
Word Weaving – A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse
I’m also thrilled to report that I will be in the first edition of Word Weaving – A Word Craft Journal of Syllabic Verse, edited by Colleen Chesebro, and Jules Paige. The Journal will be out in October!
I am participating in four more Anthologies, which will be published over the next couple of months. Like Utmost Feelings, they are being published by True Dreamster, and are full of talented writers from around the world.
Hallow Emotions is actually available now on Amazon. Please take a look, when you have a moment, thank you.
The other three are in varying stages of development, and include, Platonic Eternal Love, Blue Whispers at Midnight, Paradise of Jubilation, and The Mind’s Scribble.
As these Anthologies are completed, I will update this page, and all of you.
Academic Publications and Presentations
I’ve also published several academic papers and delivered various presentations on topics in gender and sexuality studies, youth development, bullying interventions, and program delivery and evaluation. You can access a list of those papers and presentations here.
