Novelist and columnist Dayne Sherman was good enough to interview me recently via email for Louisiana Libraries. I’m attaching a copy of the interview here as a PDF. We talk briefly about my collection, Lord’s Own Anointed, the role my hometown and religious upbringing play in the poems, and my collaboration with Rob Fairburn.

I will be reading with Simeon Berry and heather hughes at 6:30 PM on August 31 at the Cambridge Public Library (449 Broadway, Cambridge 02138). Click here to see the Facebook event page to let us know you’re coming and to invite all of your friends.
I am incredibly excited to read with these two poets. The event is hosted by Dan Wuenschel, a consummate host. I’ve attended a number of Dan’s poetry events over the past few years (and, I might add, he killed it a few months ago at Mr. Hip Presents); it is an honor to have the opportunity to enjoy some time behind the podium this time around.
I’ll be reading from Lord’s Own Anointed, of course, with copies available for sale. I’ll also read some new work, in case you’re wondering what I’ve been up to since the book came out. I hope to see you there!
