Here is my self-interview in the Next Big Thing meme. Mary Biddinger, author of Prairie Fever, St. Monica, and O Holy Insurgency, has started a self-interview series called The Next Big Thing. I’ve been tagged by T.J. Jarrett (a wonderful poet and friend) to participate. Here’s my response based on my first collection of poems, A Hymn That Meanderswhich was published by Wising Up Press in June 2011.

I have recently been on a roll trying to promote my first book of poems. And I am realizing something; it's a recent trend, I'm not sure if you've heard of it, but it's called poets like to complain. We poets have several topics of lamentation. I have listed them off for future reference:
1.) We like to complain that we don't make any money.
2.) We love to complain that nobody reads us.
3.) We really, really like to complain that nobody reads us and that we don't make any money.
