I was born in Detroit in 1964 and grew up in the metro Detroit area. I have a self-designed B.A. in English and Scandinavian Literature from the University of Minnesota and an M.I.L.S. from the University of Michigan. I’ve been a librarian at a small liberal arts college in Michigan since 1991. I edited the poetry journal Contemporary Rhyme from 2004 to 2008. I developed and maintain Phantom-Wooer: The Thomas Lovell Beddoes Website and I’ve published an academic article as well as a number of bibliographies on Beddoes.
