Sweet Ether

a writer's paradise

Hey there all my friends, writers, poets, and fans. 

I'm busy raising a toddler, but I'm still writing nearly every day! Very sorry that I haven't been present in the community much over the last 18 months, but raising a brand new human being will do that to you!!

I would appreciate it tremendously if you would head on over to Amazon and check out my new book of poetry: Sleeping Children Are Still Flying.  Here is the link:…

Any support you guys can throw my way is appreciated more than you know and will only help to continue me forward on my journey to becoming a full-time writer/poet.

  • Listening to: Steven Wilson- Hand. Cannot. Erase
  • Reading: John Berryman- The Dream Songs
  • Drinking: Coffee

my pleasure!! I've always been obsessed with collage art, since I was a child when I used to make collages out of food imagery from coupons, etc. 

I have a secret stash of material (piles and piles) and I hope one day to try my hand at the form! Between my 14 month old, being self-employed and writing full-time, I just don't have the time and I think dabbling is disrespectful to the form.

Anyway....really love what you're doing! Do you do collage commissions by any chance? I'm a published poet and I always need cover art for future books.

Drop me a note if you want, regarding the commissions.

Thank you. I hope you find time to try it someday. It is a versatile medium and addictive. Yes I do commissions. I will drop you a note.
