She has published four poetry collections, most recently This Great Green Valley by Broadstone Books “all about the spirit of a very specific place, in this case the environs of central Kentucky, . . .  in two very different times, in two very different styles.” Her upcoming collection is The Bearable Slant of Light (Red Hen Press, 2023), exploring the devastating effects of mental illness on the family.
