Thanks so much to E.R. Sanchez of Fried Potato Press for this incredible deep dive into my most recent book “The Tokyo-Van Nuys Express!” It’s quite a read and I couldn’t be more humbled by how much he immersed himself in the work. Thanks E.R! Check out the review here.
I wrote a new poem for Jewish Disabilities Awareness and Inclusion Month for a special New CAJE event earlier this month. What a unique honor to be amongst this roster of musicians and storytellers. Check out the whole event in the player below (my poem starts at 32:50) Thanks to Ben Romano for inviting me and Joanie Calem for doing so much work to make this happen!
Well this is an honor…”Dashboard Horus” a brand new online journal focusing on travel poetry has launched with me as their inaugural poet! Check out two new poems from my forthcoming collection of Hawaii poems here. Thanks Dashboard Horus! P.S. They’re open for submissions!
I just found out my book “The Tokyo Van-Nuys Express” was a semi-finalist in Winning Writers 2021 North Street Book Prize contest from over 2000 book entries! That’s pretty encouraging news. Thanks to the staff who delved into my book and congrats to the winners!
