Two Seasons Down! Epic Fully Revised.

The past few months have seen a reprieve from Poetry and an emphasis on Music, but fear not!

I've finished revising my epic poem, Among The Fog, and have currently completed two of the Seasons series. Autumn was sung first, then Summer; I'm in the middle of composing Winter and will soon turn to the first season of the series, Spring. 

Once the Four Seasons are completed, I'll be able to submit the complete manuscript (including Among The Fog) to traditional publishing houses! Stay tuned for updates in the "Published Work" section of the website as I begin to submit pieces to magazines in preparation.  

I've also started some smaller projects, notably a collection of poems on Pornography from a Christian perspective, but am hesitant to promise their publication. The work might have to remain private for now. 

I recently received an Amazon card reader and would like to print some previous poems as chapbooks to be distributed at Readings. If anyone has design experience and would like to be a part of the production, contact me anytime. Or, for that matter, if you'd like to come to said readings, connect with me on Facebook. Stay tuned, dear reader!

I grew up in Fort Worth, TX attending Covenant Classical School. I was an academic early and went on to study Great Texts of the Western Tradition at Baylor University. It was in the midst of this course of study that I began writing poems and stories and music. As a voracious reader, I was eager to contribute something of my own to the world of letters. Professionally, I work in the Specialty Coffee Industry, while pursuing literature in my free time. My upcoming works include an epic poem title Among the Fog, a series of sonnets titled Season's Song, a free-verse narrative trilogy titled The Cowtown Oracle. I am concurrently at work translating the Psalter into plainsong English with a team of scholars and linguists seeking to capture the Hebrew Poetics (according to contemporary criticism) within English verse.
