I am an immigration attorney who represents asylum-seekers before the U.S. government, with a particular passion for domestic violence survivors. I also pen poetry and prose. A former board member of the Connecticut Poetry Society, I have been published internationally and locally in several print and online journals and anthologies under the pen name, Parker Bauman. Most recently, my poems have been featured inConnecticut River Review, Big Muddy, Earthen Lamp Journal and Poeming Pigeons. This is the first novel in a series of three, and I am currently working on the sequel to Tiny Righteous Acts, where Charlotte ventures to Iran to continue her wacky version of revenge. I'm also working on a memoir, Sassy Little Jesus Girl, How a Southern Baptist Became a Progressive Table-Flipper.
