I’m a volunteer search-and-rescue dog handler in the Sierra Nevada, and also help my husband (a retired wildlife biologist) with his field projects. My poems have appeared in Grand Street, The Iowa Review, The New York Quarterly, Poetry International, and elsewhere, and I’m included in the new anthology, California Poetry: Gold Rush to the Present (Santa Clara University, 2004). My manuscript The Downstairs Dance Floor is winner of this year’s Robert Phillips Poetry Chapbook Prize from Texas Review Press; it’s due out in the spring.
