For those in the Amazon extended distribution area who may be interested, I have several books available on Amazon. Links are listed below the entries for Dance Here.

JUST RELEASED: 19 Ghazal Street, a chapbook collection of nineteen ghazals with cover art by Robert Rhodes.

For readers in Nigeria and Kenya, DANCE HERE is available from AMAB Books in Minna, Nigeria (contact them at for ordering information) and also available online from the Magunga Bookstore in Nairobi. You can read interviews about this book at THE STRONG LETTERS and the Daily Trust.

For readers outside of Nigeria and Kenya, a second / POD edition of Dance Here is scheduled for release in the US, UK, and Europe later in 2016. I also have a (VERY) few copies remaining on hand personally of the first edition; feel free to use the CONTACT ME form on this blog if you’d like to find out if any of those copies are still available.

Considering Luminescence (2015) is my second full-length collection, a gathering of poems published in US and international journals between 2013 and 2015. Several of the poems in this collection have been turned into poetry-films / video-poems by various film-makers; links for those films are provided on the acknowledgments page. Considering Luminescence was listed as a finalist in The Lascaux Review 2015 Poetry Collection Contest.

Answering the Cuttlefish (2014) is a chapbook of thirteen poems written in response to Temple Cone’s 2012 Finishing Line Press chapbook The Waters Beyond the Ark. Elena Sokolova generously allowed me to use her painting “Sunrise” as the cover for Answering the Cuttlefish — I am deeply grateful.

And Yes, I Dance (2014) is a chapbook of poems about aftermath and recovery of a brain-stem hemorrhage stroke.

last penny the sun is my first full-length collection, 60 poems. I’d like to thank Madeline Kaminski for the amazing cover photograph, and both Jose Angel Araguz and William Bernhardt for letting me use their kind words on the back cover. (Balkan Press, 2014)

RETURNING TO AWE  is a chapbook of  32 poems compiled as a gift-book dedicated to dear friends Jim and Nancy Gulley.  I’d like to thank Balkan Press for putting this collection out for me and Omar Hafidi for generously letting me use his painting “Moonstruck” for the cover. (Balkan Press, 2014)
