The Poet in the Squat Rack

Just call me Dex.

I'm a writer, we can say "professional" lightly. I'm also a mother, Marine Corps Veteran, and when I'm not holding paper and pen, I am usually holding weights. Physical experience, especially under the stress of exercise and movement, is an integral part of my creative process, as the physical comes through all my work as a metaphor for the emotional. It is this cathartic experience that continues to define me as a writer and human.

Here you'll be able to find all the latest projects I'm working on, events I'll be performing at, and where you can read my work.
