Roberta Beach Jacobson

Roberta Beach Jacobson ( is drawn to the magic of words – poetry, puzzles, song lyrics, stand-up comic humor. As a student of tanshi (short poems), she strives to include humor whenever possible. Besides poetry, she writes greeting cards, game clues and flash fiction … anything to avoid a day job.
