Selected Works

"These are poems full of good will, humor, but also exacting detail."
–Laura Kasischke
"Greatest Hits is a powerful and welcome debut."
–Thomas Lynch


Vengeful Hymns
Vengeful Hymns won the 2008 Richard Snyder Prize from Ashland University Press. "When a poet this canny and grounded and wry comes out of the heartland, there's good reason for us all to rejoice."
–Elton Glaser, contest judge

Greatest Hits
"Sheehan brings to life the dreams of working-class youth, in rural hamlets and factory towns, bikers and strippers, the young married and quickly divorced—the dull, inescapable ache of wanting to weep and not having the words."
–Vince Gotera, North American Review
