Welcome to the Water Dragon's Lair! May you be touched, moved & inspired --
My job will then be done.
Both my books, "PAINTED POEMS (PORTRAITS OF NEW MEXICO)" and
"OUT OF CULLEN STREET (A HOUSE OF MADNESS)", are available at
www.harvardbooksellers.com, and I am working on 5 more:
"101 Fibs (And I Ain't Lyin'!), "A Serious Attack of the Sillies
(No, Seriously!)", "English As A Foreign Language (With English to English
Translations)", "Cats (Not The Musical)" (a glossy coffee table book complete
with photographs), and "Cartographers of a Multiple's Universe (An Intimate
Group of Strangers)".
I am an International Poet Fellow, a member of Phi Theta Kappa, & belong
to the Academy of American Poets, and the New Mexico State Poetry Society
(NMSPS). I am now the Editor of the NMSPS quarterly newsletter, "Language
of Enchantment", the Corresponding Secretary for the NMSPS, and Co-Assistant
Chair, Publicity Chair, and Secretary/Treasurer of the Valencia County chapter
of the NMSPS, the Rio Grande Valencia Poets.
I was honored in June, 2009 to be named to the Cambridge & Biltmore Honors Editions
of Who's Who, representing Los Lunas, NM, and was nominated and accepted into the
prestigious National Association of Professional Women.
I am also on the Editorial Advisory Board of the Taj Mahal Review, an international
journal of culture, arts, literature and poetry.
I was a featured reader at a number of readings this year, including Steppin'
Out New Mexico's 3rd annual Spring Poetry Festival and another Hastings Book Store
event in April and May, 2009. I also had the honor to be the last guest poet
at the University of New Mexico, Valencia Campus' very last Creative Writing Class.
