I am a retired editor and now teach young authors about how their best pieces can be improved upon and how others (editors, critics and audiences) will view their work. I have 3 published books of poetry, most of it confessional and autobiographical; MIDNIGHT, COLD and SUNDOWN. My upcoming book AFTERMATH should be out in January, 2013. I live with two cats who have absolutely no interest in anything I do. I enjoy working with poets who wish to stretch their legs and hone their skills and do so mainly via email exchanges. Any review I make should be considered criticsm only and not an attack on the poet or his or her body of work. I review each poem as a separate entity.
