According to acclaimed author and poet Jane Yolen, "she does not speak a poem or say a poem or even perform a poem, she sticks her hand down the poem's throat and pulls it inside out. She makes you laugh, cry, feel." Her poetry book for teens, Walking on the Boundaries of Change, won the Parent's Choice Award. She is the author of two poetry books for adults, Chicks Up Front (Cleveland State University Press) and Isn't She Ladylike, (Collinwood Media, distributed by Bottom Dog Press).
