My poetry collections

I have published one collection of my poetry, After the Pills, that you may purchase here or here.

Before too long, I will publish three other collections, The Burning Archive, Dr Cogito’s Rebellion, and Meditations. I am currently sorting through the process of publishing both e-books and print-on-demand via Ingram Spark. I will let you know when that is done.

All of the poems I have published on The Burning Archive are here (some are posted alone, some embedded within longer musings):
