I was born in Brooklyn, New York and have lived for many years in Norwich, Vermont, where I teach American literature and Women’s, Gender and Sexuality Studies at Dartmouth College. My passions are gardening and poetry. I have published in Birchsong: Poetry Centered in Vermont, The Glass Seed Annual, Solidus 3 (with interview), Antiphon 19, Clear Poetry, and in the last four issues of Bloodroot Literary Magazine.
