about

I’m from New Jersey, currently living in Newark. I write about stuff like sex & relationships, the prison industrial complex, and family life. I also teach at Seton Hall University.

I have two non-fiction books out–Abandonment Issues: Alive in New Jersey (color version) and Back Like I Never Left: Dating as a Single Mother.

And these are a few selected poems: “Pregnant in Grad School,” “Dirty Money,” “Carrie’s Blood,” “Paying 4 It,” “Repeat Visitor,” “Off the Menu” and essays: dating for money, solo travel and poetry, intimate partner violence, policing as violence.
