I live in New Haven, Connecticut with my husband. He works at Beinecke Rare Books Library at Yale. I teach literature/writing classes on line. We have four children between us 18 - 3. A blended family. I'm coming to Missoula with my friend Lori to do a poetry reading. We both have new books out. We're friends from graduate school. Lori published my book. It's lovely. My best friend lives, Nyss Ammons, a family therapist and her husband Daniel (who runs a CrossFit gym) lives in Missoula so I will also spend time with her and her family. My family is from Spokane. We have a cabin on Priest Lake.
