Portrait by Michelle Goodearl Photography

Welcome to my home online! I’d love to know how you found it. Was it my role as Editor in Chief of Folded Word? Or my collaborative project with William O’Daly entitled WATER WAYS? Or even my calligraphy for Folded Word’s haiku collections: WASP SHADOWS (2014), WHAT WAS HERE (2015), and A YEAR UNFOLDING (2017)?

A few other things about me: I’m the author of HOW TO WRITE AN EXCEPTIONAL THESIS OR DISSERTATION (2012, Atlantic Publishing), a project that came about after earning my Master of Science degree in Biology from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb where I studied wetland dynamics under the tutelage of the Aquatic Ecologist Dr. Carl N. von Ende, PhD. I also hold a Literary Publishing Certificate from Emerson College, Boston. My photography has appeared on the covers of numerous Folded Word titles, as well as the publications of many non-profits.

I live surrounded by trees in the picturesque highlands of Meredith, New Hampshire and take LOADS of photos. I love writing aboard the M/S Mount Washington as it cruises Lake Winnipesaukee. And I’m constantly experimenting with the chapbook arts.
