    PETALUMA POETRY WALK
    September 23, 2007

    Poetry Flash, Spring 2007, included a review of major feminist writer Marge Piercy's most recent -- and perhaps most important -- novel, "Sex Wars."

    “What It Is To Go Blind” was published in the new online zine, Wheelhouse Magazine. Wheelhouse is also planning to institute a print version, which will publish “Dancing in the Mi-T-Mart at Midnight.”


    Now represented on the writer's website,
    The Red Room!
