Housley is a poet and the author of eight books. Her two collections of poetry, Firmament (Higganum Hill Books 2007) and Epiphanies (Wising Up Press 2013) explore the borderlands between science and religion. Her poems have been compared to iron filings between two magnets, revealing lines of force that are both scientifically complex and beautifully simple. They have appeared in Image, BioLogos (online), The Christian Century, and Ars Medica. She has also written on materials science, an arcane field previously known as metallurgy, which is perhaps the oldest science on Earth. As Artist of the Month in 2007 for Image, Housley was described as “a sort of Dian Fossey of human language. In pursuit of its mysteries, she has gone out in language’s dark, misty forest and lived among it like a conservation biologist, with her clipboard and binoculars.”
