This quarter, J. Harlan Ritchey and I are the cover feature for The Art Buyer’s Guide to Central PA for our collaboration on Heartwood published by Mt. Nittany Press. In Heartwood, I wanted to “observe… who and how I was in the world and the world was in itself… and put those reflections into evocative poems.” Harlan’s art certainly helps the reader do that with intricate details you can feel in your hands. I hope you pick up a copy or look through the site, support us, and support other excellent art and artists.
Have to give big thanks to my partner Meg for taking the photos of Harlan and me (one pic below courtesy of the Art Alliance website). After all, the book is dedicated to her.
