Budding Branch Books has recently published my new book of poems, BEFORE DREAMING. The publication announcement described the work:
“BEFORE DREAMING allows us to enter a personal world that is at once accessible and layered with meaning. Varied in tone, from deeply moving to light-hearted, the work shows a keen sense of structure and rhythm, a testament to a strong poetic style rooted in experience.”
The book is available at BROADWAY BOOKS (broadwaybooks.net), POWELLS (powells.com) and CANNON BEACH BOOKS. Please search Arn Strasser or Before Dreaming. Please visit
