I live and write near Carbondale, Illinois with my wife of forty-five years and two 27 year-old desert tortoises. I write fiction under the name Mitchell Poole.
I am active in community theater with The Stage Company of Carbondale, IL. Our next play will be Jacob Marley’s Christmas Carol which runs at the Varsity Center for the Arts in Carbondale on December 9. 10, 16 and 17 at 7:30 PM and December 11 and 18 at 2 PM.
I’ve had poems published in Pegasus, A Hudson View, and Literary House Quarterly and prose published in Literary House Quarterly. I do editing for friends.
