I sing the body scientific write things. If you'd like to keep in touch about my work, please subscribe to my newsletter here.

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.

"Frozen Fish Stick Blues"—teen lab lit about biomagnification—is out in the April 2016 issue of ChemMatters.

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.
