About the Author

Extremely large public sculpture was killing me. When my poet husband and I moved from Chicago to Appalachia I thought maybe I could write.

My first book, Beats Me, Love, Poetry, Censorship from Chicago to Appalachia was a valentine for my late husband, Paul Carroll. It told of our love and his historic win against censorship in 1960. It won designation as a '100 Notable 2015 Indie Book' from Shelf Unbound Magazine.

Then I began to write poems in the Spring of 2016, after finishing my book. Not knowing if my first poem warranted consideration I emailed Pulitzer Poet, Stephen Dunn, on Memorial Day and he responded that he thought 'Song for a Dead Lover' was a wonderful poem. The book Conversations with a Dead Lover was published in 2017.

For some reason, people always tell me things. They confess. Living in a fairytale-like setting, Beaver Dams, I wrote down the true stories from this area. One editor compared my "Tales from Beaver Dams" to James Harriot's "All Creatures Great and Small."
