I have just finished writing my fourth collection, The Well of the Moon – poems considering the kinds of knowledge it takes to make up our sense of ourselves as ‘a person’. They deal with connections to place and family, different ways of perceiving the world and creative expressions, loss, aging and renewal. It will come out in June 2021, published by Red Squirrel Press.


Reviews have appeared in Northwords Now,  The Scottish Review of Books, and Sabotage Reviews


Articles on Christian mysticism have appeared in The Chapter, Spirituality and The Merton Journal. In 2007 I completed a translation and commentary on the medieval work, The Cloud of Unknowing.
