I’m a poet and Professor of English at Harper College in suburban Chicago. My husband Robert Frolick and I are the lucky earthlings who get to parent Stella, our extraterrestrial daughter-creature.

My work is my way of connecting with the world around me, and I truly value my readers. I hope you find something among my poems that shakes and inspires you.

My writing has appeared or is forthcoming in RHINO, Tinderbox, Sundog Literature, Midwestern Gothic, Ninth Letter online, Whale Road Review, Crab Creek Review, Yellow Chair review, and many others.
