I’m a writer, editor, and teacher, and I enjoy connecting with readers and other writers. I grew up in Arkansas and am a long-time resident of Alabama, and in November 2017 I was commissioned Alabama Poet Laureate, for a four-year term. My latest book is a poetry chapbook, "Borrowed Light," and my current writing project is a biography of the writer Sara Mayfield. I call this blog "A Map of the World" because I think that, as writers, we each map our own lives, imaginations, and world. Welcome to my particular map!

Looking at the way birds have nested in a broken plastic sign I passed while driving to town today, it occurred to me that I love how birds will nest in any hospitable place.

(The image above is of artist Jenni Horne's bird's nest necklaces, one of which I gave to my sister for Christmas.)
