Welcome

I’m a poet, fiction writer, and essayist. Here on my site you’ll find my blog, as well as links to my publications.

While I’m proud of all of my publications, I’m most proud of my two books, which you can order by clicking on the images below:

You can get in touch with me through my contact page. Also, you can follow me on Twitter (@plainswriter) and on my Facebook page.

A little bit about me. I was born in southern Minnesota, but while growing up, I had little interest in the Plains and opens spaces.  A stint at a rural state liberal arts college in southwestern Minnesota, as well as grad-school stints in northwestern Minnesota and southeastern South Dakota changed my perspectives.

I currently serve as Associate Professor of English & Creative Writing at the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor in Belton, Texas. I also edit The Windhover and direct The Windhover Writers’ Festival. When not writing or teaching, I run, read, play piano, listen to music, and play disc golf. My greatest joys are my wife, my son, and my daughter.
