Her poems have appeared in the Atlantic Monthly, Poetry, in anthologies, and are forthcoming in Ploughshares and Orion. Her second book, Ice-Blink, will be published in late 2009. A recent transplant from Alaska, she lives in North Truro. When not writing, she works as a naturalist.

In 2004 he edited a feature on Kenneth Rexroth for Jacket, and a chapbook titled Nevertheless: Some Gloucester Writers and Artists. From 1992 to 2002 he was a publisher and editor of compost magazine. A retrospective anthology of compost, co-edited with Margaret Bezucha, is titled There’s No Place on Earth Like the World (Zephyr, 2006). He is now guest editing a feature on Denise Levertov for Jacket. He lives with his wife Kelly, and son Theo, in Newton, Massachusetts.
