I had my first poem published at the age of 10 in Children's Digest magazine. It was a silly little poem about junk food;but still, when I found the issue in my mailbox, I ran all the way up my driveway with it flapping in my sweaty hand. We all have to start somewhere. I received my BA in Honors English from the University of New Hampshire and an MFA in Creative Writing from Emerson College.I serve as adjunct faculty in creative writing at a local university.
