She taught Writing at CUNY/Staten Island for 22 years, has been included in numerous magazines, and anthologies such as Cradle and All (Faber and Faber) and The Big Book of Sex (Autonomedia), is a member of The Unbearables, and has read solo at international venues such as the Cialuna Library in Barletta, Italy, and Studio-Baustelle in Berlin, and been featured at most in NYC, such as Bowery, Parkside, Shades, HiFi and Cornelia St.
