Golden Haiku 2019
UPDATE: Golden Haiku 2020
I am so happy to have two of my haiku chosen to be displayed on the sidewalks of Washington DC for the 2020 Golden haiku Contest! This year's theme was the beauty of nature in the city. The photo above is from last year's contest! As soon as I have rehabbed from my knee replacement surgery, I will venture downtown to have my picture taken with my signs!! Until then...

I am very excited to announce the publication of The Amazing Glass house: A Haiku Storybook. It is a wonderful haiku/picture book about my favorite place in the world, The Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. It is a true story about Phipps, my sisters, and me! You can find it on Amazon or buy a signed copy from my website store! By the way, the illustrations are amazing!
