My new chapbook, Odysseus' Daughter, is now available from Parkman Press, in a beautiful letterpress volume, with images on the cover of Athena and an owl, drawn by my brother James Thomas.

The poems were written in response to fifteen years of teaching Homer's great epic. They imagine what some characters may have said and thought, and invent some ne
w characters as well. To read a poem from the book, click here. If you’d like to order the book, just click on the cover image.
