My poetry collection To the Man in the Red Suit is officially published by the good people at Rootstock Publishing. My book stitches together my father's unconventional life and death. I try to capture his child-like sense of humor and whimsy and my very adult and fragmented sense of loss. I try to come to terms with generations of mental disorders and the realization of my own.

Check out this review done by a very dear friend and former mentor, Dr. Goldstein  on the Books by Women website:

Check out my interview on the South Florida Poetry Journal! Follow this link and scroll to April 2020:

Elizabeth was just trying to wrap her head around starting high school when her own hair started to wrap her up in a world of ghosts and demons.

Fourteen-year-old Elizabeth Bugsby was used to the unconventional ins and outs of living above her family-run funeral home until her hair started attaching to ghosts and reanimating corpses.


Now with a new swanky cover and a lower price!

An anthology my short fiction story
"The Old Freak is Dead" is featured in. See what happens when an eccentric artist dies and uses his death to create one more mind-blowing and heart warming installation piece.
