for the issue and has been nominated as one of three by that journal for a 'Best

Also look for my poetry on this Australian 2003 year

I was featured poet in 2008
in both In The Fray
and Empowerment4Women and in 2009, in From East to West.
A nice surprise at the end of 2008 was a Pushcart Prize
Nomination and two more nominations at the end of 2009, as well as two nominations for
the Best of the Net and Best of the Web nominations.
My self-portrait haiga is in the mid-season 2007 issue of
Haigaonline and in a 2006 issue of Simply Haiku. The Haigaonline editor took time to read this bio first and wrote a wonderful introduction to
the haiga, including information about the illness I deal with . I hadn't yet
added the note about the name change but nevertheless, it's a wonderful issue
and spreads the word about ME/CFS even further. Click on my name in this link to
read and see the haiga HERE.
Take time to visit the rest of the issue, too. I've also published other
haiga with a wide range of images. My haiga has also appeared in Moonset
and Sketchbook.. I don't post all of my haiga links since I've
published over a hundred of them now, but , again, one can be found
in the Spring/Summer 2009 issue of Simply
Haiku. I'm also in the current 2010-2011 issues of Haigaonline, From the
Gean, Haijinx and Sketchbook.
