I am a lifelong resident of Madison, Wisconsin USA.
My prose and poetry have been published in anthologies, in magazines, and online. Three of my poems have been set to music by Madison composer, Brian Schultz.
The title of this site, “The Body’s Heated Speech,” comes from my bike poem of the same name: ….the body’s heated speech so persuasive he returns again and again. It’s the thrill of being the engine that drives the machine, it’s the will to last long…. It applies specifically to my long involvement with distance running and cycling, and more generally to the experience of love and passion.
