Poetry Collections

My ebook versions are once again in flux. I will update when I have new links.

Print still available on Lulu

  • Straying from the Path

    A collection of thirteen illustrated poems based on the classic fairy tales. These are not your children’s fairy tales… Print now available once more from Lulu. The lovely illustrations by Donna Minshew are one of the highlights of the collection.

  • Dancing on the Edge

    Thirty-five poems on life’s ups and downs. Originally written when I was teaching in South Texas, and several of the poems reflect that in different ways. 🙂

  • If My Sandcastle Drowns, Can I Live With You

    Forty-nine poems covering a period from my high-school years to the time of publication. A mixed bag of mainstream and genre offerings.

  • Take Out from the Writers Café

    Over one hundred offerings written for contests and prompts at the Writer’s Cafe website. Many of these poems were contest winners in peer voting. Arranged like a take-out menu, the poems range from haikus to multi-part pieces. Something for most tastes.

  • By Candlelight

    My newest collection is horror poems sprinkled with previously published short stories. Thirty-five poems and four short stories look at the darker fringes of the world — though sometimes with a humorous edge…

    If you collect all my poetry books, you will find a few overlapping pieces. I don’t consider this a fault, because I don’t expect most people will want them all — but if you do, be advised that there may be one or two familiar pieces between volumes. 🙂
