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.
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.

I really like your poetry.
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...
