If YOU would like to have me talk with your book group or organization or class about writing -- poetry or fiction -- I'd be happy to! I'm available in person (when we're not in the middle of a pandemic) or via video chat. Contact me and let's work out the details.

What's New in Authorland?

I recently earned Honorable Mention for my short story "Mother" in the Spider Road Press Flash Fiction Contest! What's more, SRP also nominated the story for the Best Small Fiction 2019 award and anthology. Click here to read the story.

I'm now on Instagram! (Who ever thought that would happen?) Find me there as angeliquejamail. Not supremely original, I know, but very easy to find!
