She is the author of the poetry collection Someone Else's Wedding Vows (2010), Poetry Comics from the Book of Hours (2016), and The Möbius Strip Club of Grief (2018).

Her poems, poetry comics, and nonfiction have appeared in a variety of magazines.

She has returned to Vermont with her husband and collaborator, poet Ben Pease, and their daughter Odette.
