I was born with the name Riviere which means river in French.  When I married Ed Seel, I took him and his name as a part of myself.  Seel means soul in German.  I am, indeed, a river soul.  


  • This has been a busy year, with the release of my first full length poetry collection, Nothing Below but Air, in March, followed by reading and workshop. I've just begun a new collaboration with Sherri Raeford, artistic director of Shared Radiance, a theater company that will be performing The Serial Killer's Daughter.
