I've set up a Patreon for those folks interested in reading poems relating recent science news.

My collaboration with Peg Duthie, inspired by the work of visual artist Beth Moon and titled "In the Veins of the Pitchers", is now up in a special issue of Poemeleon.

My Science@Work interview featuring Valerie L. Buxton is out in the February 2017 issue of Muse. It doesn't mention that the call of a male Cope's gray treefrog sounds like a guiro, but it does tell you lots of other fascinating things about these frogs and how they help us.

My YA science fiction short story "Consolidating Dad"—featuring light-up press-on nails and the dream machine—is now out in the November/December 2016 issue of Muse.

The Scientific Method is available from Parallel Press. It includes poems about the Navier-Stokes equations, Barbara McClintock, moss, and other intriguing scientific topics. Email me if you'd like to purchase an autographed copy.
