I am a musician from the North Carolina coast. I've been writing music since my teens, poetry about six years, and flash fiction a few years. I'm looking forward to meeting more writers and creative people.
My poems and stories have appeared in: Word Riot, Pequin, Up the Staircase, MicroHorror, Yellow Mama, Mad Swirl, Oak Bend Review, The Orange Room Review, and All Things Girl, elimae, Necrotic Tissue,Bards and Sages, and other small press zines.
I'm constantly dreaming - day dreaming as if movies are being played in my head non-stop. I write because the act of creating is my drug; I swear I feel zoned in a good way channeling that energy. Sometimes, it is hard to turn it off and I find I'm captive to insomnia.
I'm a contemporary poetry junkie and I'm always finding new names to add to my list of favorite poets - some are famous poets and many are not.
Thanks for commenting on "Getting Godless," Paula!
Paula you are so kind to say what you did about "Sit in Here" - I love the way you said it and it made me really happy - i don't get why that one is liked so much but I am glad it is because it was inspired by Jeff Landon's Flying - which you must google and read. It is the best.
Hi, Paula! Thank you. Your reading of "The Pain Taster" was beautiful. It made my night. Hope your doing well. :)
Hi Paula! thanks for the kind comment on my story, I appreciate it!
Thanks for your kind comments on the biker piece, Paula. I think if you look hard enough there is a little biker bitch in all of us! Totally loving your work here!
Hi, Paula. Glad you see you back! Happy you liked the Waffle poem. Thanks for commenting!

Thank you for the reflections on Dishwater Panacea. I appreciate the kind words!
Appreciate your read, lovely comments and fave of "Snow" Paula. Thanks much.
Hey Paula! Thanks for your comments on "Missing Person". I see you're a musician. Got any tunes on line I can check out? I've been a songwriter most of my life....used to tour alot....till the kids came along.
Thanks, Paula! Really pleased you liked "In the Pastel City." The last line comes from The Tempest.
Thanks for reading and commenting on "Lip" Paula...
Thanks, Paula. Glad you liked "Violet Rivers."
I've just stumbled onto your writing and am dazzled by the richness of it. Started with Free Space and Turtle Summer went onto a few others. Your voice is absolute candy. And then I read that you're a musician. Please tell me a bit about that if you have a moment – what you play, where I can sample your music online, etc. If the writing is any indication, I'll bet it's superb stuff.
Thanks for the generous comment on If Wishes Were Horses, Paula. I appreciate the read!
