About Me

I write poetry, books for kids, and the occasional rant for All Things Considered. I misspell a LOT, as I am often chasing two toddlers while I type.

Why do you write?

It beats doing the dishes.

No, seriously... because it's the most interesting thing I know how to do, and I believe it matters. Also I suck at a lot of other things.

Any favorite authors? Books?

James Thurber, John Berryman, Roald Dahl, Tomaz Salamun, Edward Eager, Wallace Stegner.

I really like your poetry.

John Minichillo – Sep 14, 2008

You are reading in Nashville next week. Me and my very young son will try to make it out.

Of course--how could I forget?! What fun to see you here!
Hope you're doing well...
