Bitter / Love is a two sided chapbook I put out for Valentine's Day that year.
Find them at at http://www.etsy.com/shop/puffytailcat.

My poem “Her Own Name” is in the Winter 2015 issue of Cirque.

My poem "Park Theatre" is in Heart & Mind Zine Issue #1, Fall 2015.
The poem is my homage to the old single screen Park Theatre that used to be on Park Blvd in Hillcrest in San Diego, CA.
It's where I watched movies like The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love, Baraka, and King of the Hill
among other indie and foreign gems. Ahhh, nostalgia!

I am very happy to say that I was one of 62 Washington State artists to receive
Grants for Artist Projects (GAP) funding in 2012 from Artist Trust.
This funding allowed me to focus on completing my full length play,
Hidden Potential, or The Straight Gene. (For more: Press Release, Artist Profile)

The really cool people at Sun & Moon Vision Productions are hard at work on
Youth Out Loud II – a documentary addressing LGBT youth issues in our schools.
