This is a collaborative book project with the Northwest Fisher Poets, in which we collected poetry, written stories, and select interviews from over 30 fisher poets. This series consists of 7 cover illustrations for each of the 7 volumes of the Fisher Poets' Anthology collection. Each cover represents a different theme identified in the writing of the fisher poets. These themes are: Family, Work, Community, Gender, Risk, History, and Politics. You can check out the individual books and complete anthology for sale at my store HERE.

Albino- Short Story
She was pale, even thought the summer had been the hottest and sunniest I'd ever remembered. I was sitting on my front lawn the first time I saw her, sweating profusely in my tank top and cut off shorts, drinking cup after cup of lemonade and reading Sherlock Holmes, when she drifted by in a baggy long sleeve black shirt with her hair hanging half over her face.
I noticed the blue crow again, and again, outside her house, perched on the spaghetti string of power lines. It was there when she walked to the bus every morning, and it was there outside the school window of the history class we shared. Never once did I see her interact with the blue crow, her secret feathered companion. And I was jealous of her. Jealous that she had a secret crow; jealous that she lived in the hermit’s house; jealous that she never had to speak a word. I would stalk the streets looking for its blue-black feathers but I never found any.

Sticks and Stone: Picture Book Series
It feels a little dry around here
A gentle tug and we'll be on our way
Better fuel up for the journey ahead
Thats a long way down
The sign says one thing but my roots say another
This place makes me feel sad
There's the spot!
We can stay here a while
...and we'll both be fed
It was a good journy my friend
